Convenient & Local 2018 Kia Forte5 A/C Repair

A/C Repair Service for Your Kia Forte5

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Kia Forte5 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Kia vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2018 Kia Forte5 A/C systems. Bring your Kia Forte5 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2018 Kia Forte5 A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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." 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 system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your Forte5

While your 2018 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. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2018 Kia Forte5 A/C recharges.

Common Kia Forte5 A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Kia Forte5 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems 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 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 2018 Kia Forte5? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2018 Kia Forte5 A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Forte5 air conditioner colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • What’s making my Forte5 A/C put out warm air? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? 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.
