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.
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.
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.
