Hyundai Elantra A/C Repair

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Hyundai Elantra?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Hyundai vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2012 Hyundai A/C systems. Steer your Hyundai Elantra to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2012 Hyundai Elantra’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 think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use 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 identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Elantra A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2012 Hyundai Elantra A/C system. We will also perform 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 Hyundai's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2012 Hyundai Elantra A/C recharges.

Common Hyundai Elantra A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Hyundai Elantra A/C problem you may 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2012 Hyundai Elantra? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Elantra.

Questions About 2012 Hyundai Elantra A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Elantra air conditioning 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? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a 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.
