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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Ford C-Max A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Ford vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2016 Ford C-Max A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Ford C-Max
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2016 Ford C-Max 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 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 Ford C-Max A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out 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 2016 Ford C-Max, 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 Ford 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. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2016 Ford C-Max A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Ford C-Max A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2016 Ford C-Max? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your C-Max — without all the sweat puddles!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 2016 Ford C-Max A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
