A/C Service for Acura SLX

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Acura SLX?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Acura vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1997 Acura SLX A/C systems. Steer your Acura SLX to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1997 Acura SLX’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Acura SLX A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Acura SLX

While your 1997 Acura SLX’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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Acura guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1997 Acura SLX A/C recharges.

Common Acura SLX A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Acura SLX A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1997 Acura SLX? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your SLX — without all the sweat puddles!

1997 Acura SLX A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my SLX 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 do I get hot air from my SLX A/C? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • 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 SLX's A/C system.
