A/C Repair Service for Your Jeep Patriot

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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Jeep Patriot A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Jeep vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2016 Jeep. Bring your Jeep Patriot to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2016 Jeep Patriot A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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 Jeep Patriot A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Jeep Patriot

Let's say we repair your 2016 Jeep Patriot A/C system. We will also perform 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. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2016 Jeep Patriot A/C recharges.

Other Jeep Patriot A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Jeep Patriot A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2016 Jeep Patriot? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Patriot.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2016 Jeep Patriot A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Patriot air conditioner colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my Patriot A/C blowing hot 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 causes A/C system leaks? 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 Patriot’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
