Convenient & Local 2016 Ford Escape A/C Repair

A/C Service for Ford Escape

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. “Who can fix my Ford Escape A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Ford vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2016 Ford. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Ford Escape

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2016 Ford Escape’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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.” A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Ford Escape A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Escape A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2016 Ford Escape A/C system. We will also perform 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 Ford guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2016 Ford Escape A/C recharges.

Common Ford Escape A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Ford Escape A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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. And smelly A/C in a 2016 Ford Escape? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Escape.

Questions About 2016 Ford Escape A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Escape 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 Escape 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Escape’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.
