2009 Acura RDX A/C Repair Near You

A/C Service for Acura RDX

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Acura RDX A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Acura vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2009 Acura A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Acura RDX

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2009 Acura RDX A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. If any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Acura RDX A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Acura RDX

While your 2009 Acura RDX’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Acura’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2009 Acura RDX A/C recharges.

Common Acura RDX A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Acura RDX A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 2009 Acura RDX? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your RDX.

2009 Acura RDX A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my RDX air conditioner colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • Why is my RDX A/C blowing hot air? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your RDX’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
