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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Jeep Patriot A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Jeep vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2011 Jeep Patriot A/C systems. Steer your Jeep Patriot to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2011 Jeep Patriot’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 Jeep Patriot A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
While your 2011 Jeep Patriot’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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Jeep guidelines. 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 ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2011 Jeep Patriot A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Jeep Patriot A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is 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 2011 Jeep Patriot? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Patriot.
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 2011 Jeep Patriot A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
