There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Kia Forte Koup A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Kia vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2016 Kia 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 2016 Kia Forte Koup 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 suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Kia Forte Koup A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
Let's say we repair your 2016 Kia Forte Koup 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Kia's recommendations. 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 Kia Forte Koup A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Kia Forte Koup A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also include 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2016 Kia Forte Koup? 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 Forte Koup.
