Nearest A/C Repair for Your 1999 Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai Elantra A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Hyundai Elantra?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Hyundai vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1999 Hyundai Elantra A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Hyundai Elantra

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1999 Hyundai Elantra 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 any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Hyundai Elantra A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Elantra A/C Recharge

While your 1999 Hyundai Elantra’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 Hyundai's recommendations. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1999 Hyundai Elantra A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Hyundai Elantra A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Hyundai Elantra A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems 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 may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1999 Hyundai Elantra? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Elantra — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1999 Hyundai Elantra A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Elantra air conditioner 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.
  • What’s making my Elantra A/C put out warm air? 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 Elantra’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
