2009 Honda Civic A/C Repair Near You

A/C Repair Service for Your Honda Civic

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Honda Civic A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Honda vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2009 Honda Civic A/C systems. Bring your Honda Civic to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2009 Honda Civic 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." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Honda Civic A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Civic A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2009 Honda Civic, 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 Honda's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant 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 2009 Honda Civic A/C recharges.

Common Honda Civic A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Honda Civic A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2009 Honda Civic? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Civic’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2009 Honda Civic A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Civic air conditioning 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 Civic A/C? 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 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 Civic’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
