Convenient & Local 2013 Kia Forte Koup A/C Repair

A/C Service for Kia Forte Koup

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Kia Forte Koup?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Kia vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2013 Kia Forte Koup A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Kia Forte Koup

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2013 Kia Forte Koup A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Kia Forte Koup A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Forte Koup A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2013 Kia Forte Koup, 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Kia guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2013 Kia Forte Koup A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Kia Forte Koup A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Kia Forte Koup A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. 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 2013 Kia Forte Koup? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Forte Koup — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2013 Kia Forte Koup A/C Systems

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