Convenient & Local 2017 Kia Niro A/C Repair

A/C Service for Kia Niro

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Kia Niro A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Kia vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2017 Kia Niro A/C systems. Steer your Kia Niro to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2017 Kia Niro’s 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 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 Niro A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Niro A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2017 Kia Niro, we’ll also do 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. Then, they’ll use Kia’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2017 Kia Niro A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Kia Niro A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Kia Niro A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also include 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 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. And smelly A/C in a 2017 Kia Niro? 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 Niro.

Questions About 2017 Kia Niro A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Niro 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 do I get hot air from my Niro A/C? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Niro’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
