Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Jeep Grand Cherokee?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Jeep vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C systems. Bring your Jeep Grand Cherokee to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your Grand Cherokee

Let's say we repair your 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C system. We will also perform 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). Then, they’ll use Jeep’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 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Grand Cherokee’s A/C!

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my Grand Cherokee air conditioner 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 Grand Cherokee 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 Grand Cherokee’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
