Convenient & Local 2019 Ford Escape A/C Repair

Ford Escape A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Ford Escape?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Ford vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2019 Ford A/C systems. Bring your Ford Escape to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2019 Ford Escape A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." 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 there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Recharge the A/C in Your Escape

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2019 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). Then, they’ll use Ford’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. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2019 Ford Escape A/C recharges.

Other Ford Escape A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Ford Escape A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. 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 2019 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.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2019 Ford Escape A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Escape air conditioner colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my Escape A/C blowing hot air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? 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.
