Convenient & Local 2012 Hyundai Sonata A/C Repair

A/C Service for Hyundai Sonata

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Hyundai Sonata A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Hyundai vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2012 Hyundai Sonata A/C systems. Bring your Hyundai Sonata to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2012 Hyundai Sonata’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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 Sonata A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Recharge the A/C in Your Sonata

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2012 Hyundai Sonata, 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. Then, they’ll use Hyundai’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2012 Hyundai Sonata A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Hyundai Sonata A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Hyundai Sonata A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 2012 Hyundai Sonata? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Sonata’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2012 Hyundai Sonata A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Sonata 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Sonata A/C? 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 Sonata’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
