Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Cadillac XTS A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Cadillac vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2015 Cadillac A/C systems. Bring your Cadillac XTS to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2015 Cadillac XTS’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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Cadillac XTS 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.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2015 Cadillac XTS, 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Cadillac guidelines. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system 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 2015 Cadillac XTS A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Cadillac XTS 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. 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. And smelly A/C in a 2015 Cadillac XTS? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your XTS.
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 2015 Cadillac XTS A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
