When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like lava.

We’ve got experience with Acura vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2014 Acura. Steer your Acura RDX to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2014 Acura RDX A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Acura RDX A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
While your 2014 Acura RDX’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll use Acura’s specifications to evacuate the system. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2014 Acura RDX A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Acura RDX A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 2014 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. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your RDX.
