A/C Repair Service for Your Ford Expedition

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. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Ford Expedition?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Ford vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2001 Ford Expedition A/C systems. Bring your Ford Expedition to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2001 Ford Expedition 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.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Ford Expedition A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Expedition A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2001 Ford Expedition A/C system. We will also perform 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. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2001 Ford Expedition A/C recharges.

Common Ford Expedition A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Ford Expedition A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2001 Ford Expedition? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 Expedition — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 2001 Ford Expedition A/C Systems

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