Acura TL A/C Repair

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Acura TL?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Acura vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1997 Acura A/C systems. Steer your Acura TL to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1997 Acura TL A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 TL 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.

A/C Recharge for Acura TL

While your 1997 Acura TL’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 once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1997 Acura TL A/C recharges.

Common Acura TL A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Acura TL A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems include 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1997 Acura TL? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your TL — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1997 Acura TL A/C Systems

  • Can I make my TL 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 TL 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 causes A/C system leaks? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your TL’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.
