A/C Repair Service for Your Acura TL

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 it's burning your hands. 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 qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1998 Acura. Steer your Acura TL to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1998 Acura TL’s 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. A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Acura TL A/C system that can 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 TL

While your 1998 Acura TL’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 after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1998 Acura TL A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Acura TL A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Acura TL A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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. 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 1998 Acura TL? 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 TL’s A/C!

Questions About 1998 Acura TL A/C Systems

  • How 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.
  • What’s making my TL A/C put out warm air? 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? 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 TL's A/C system.
