Convenient & Local 2017 Ford Escape A/C Repair

A/C Service for Ford Escape

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. 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 Ford Escape?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Ford vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2017 Ford Escape A/C systems. Steer your Ford Escape to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2017 Ford Escape A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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. A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Ford Escape A/C system that can 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.

A/C Recharge for Ford Escape

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2017 Ford Escape, 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). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Ford's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2017 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 2017 Ford Escape? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Escape — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2017 Ford Escape A/C Systems

  • 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.
  • What’s making my Escape A/C put out warm air? 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 can cause an A/C system leak? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Escape’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
