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.
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.
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!
When you’ve got car A/C problems, don’t sweat it. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, our technicians are qualified to diagnose issues and repair your 2013 Kia Forte Koup A/C system. Beat the heat and come in today for a refreshingly easy A/C performance check.
