Nearest A/C Repair for Your 2018 Honda Ridgeline

A/C Repair Service for Your Honda Ridgeline

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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Honda Ridgeline A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Honda vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2018 Honda Ridgeline A/C systems. Bring your Honda Ridgeline to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2018 Honda Ridgeline A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 Honda Ridgeline A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Recharge the A/C in Your Ridgeline

While your 2018 Honda Ridgeline’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll use Honda’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2018 Honda Ridgeline A/C recharges.

Other Honda Ridgeline A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Honda Ridgeline A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2018 Honda Ridgeline? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 Ridgeline.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2018 Honda Ridgeline A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Ridgeline air conditioning colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Ridgeline 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.
  • 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 Ridgeline’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
