2016 Acura RDX A/C Repair Near You

A/C Service for Acura RDX

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Acura RDX A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Acura vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2016 Acura RDX A/C systems. Bring your Acura RDX to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2016 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 we suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. 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 detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

RDX A/C Recharge

While your 2016 Acura RDX’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Acura's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2016 Acura RDX A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Acura RDX A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Acura RDX A/C problem you may 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2016 Acura RDX? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your RDX’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2016 Acura RDX A/C Systems

  • How can I make my RDX air conditioner colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why do I get hot air from my RDX A/C? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your RDX's A/C system.
