Kia Forte5 A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Kia Forte5 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Kia vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2014 Kia Forte5 A/C systems. Steer your Kia Forte5 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2014 Kia Forte5 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 we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Kia Forte5 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Forte5 A/C Recharge

While your 2014 Kia Forte5’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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. 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 ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2014 Kia Forte5 A/C recharges.

Other Kia Forte5 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Kia Forte5 A/C problem you may encounter. 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 2014 Kia Forte5? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Forte5.

2014 Kia Forte5 A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my Forte5 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 Forte5 A/C blowing hot air? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Forte5’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
