A/C Service for Acura SLX

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Acura SLX?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Acura vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1999 Acura SLX A/C systems. Bring your Acura SLX to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1999 Acura SLX’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 SLX A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Recharge the A/C in Your SLX

While your 1999 Acura SLX’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). Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Acura guidelines. 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. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1999 Acura SLX A/C recharges.

Other Acura SLX A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Acura SLX A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1999 Acura SLX? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your SLX — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 1999 Acura SLX A/C Systems

  • How 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? 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 SLX’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.
