Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Honda CR-V A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Honda vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2021 Honda. Bring your Honda CR-V to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2021 Honda CR-V A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. 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.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Honda CR-V A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
Let's say we repair your 2021 Honda CR-V 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 Honda guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2021 Honda CR-V A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Honda CR-V A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns 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 2021 Honda CR-V? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your CR-V.
