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 Element A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Honda vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2008 Honda Element A/C systems. Steer your Honda Element to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2008 Honda Element’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. 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 Honda Element A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Element A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2008 Honda Element, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Honda's recommendations. 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 are trained to efficiently perform 2008 Honda Element A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Honda Element A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Honda Element A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. 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 2008 Honda Element? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Element — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 2008 Honda Element A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Element 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 do I get hot air from my Element A/C? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Element's A/C system.
