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 it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Kia K900 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Kia vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2016 Kia A/C systems. Steer your Kia K900 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2016 Kia K900 A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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." A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Kia K900 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
Let's say we repair your 2016 Kia K900 A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Kia guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2016 Kia K900 A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Kia K900 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2016 Kia K900? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your K900 — without all the sweat puddles!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 2016 Kia K900 A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
