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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Kia Rio5 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Kia vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2007 Kia. Bring your Kia Rio5 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2007 Kia Rio5 A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Kia Rio5 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.
Let's say we repair your 2007 Kia Rio5 A/C system. We will also perform 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 after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2007 Kia Rio5 A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Kia Rio5 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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 2007 Kia Rio5? 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 Rio5.
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 2007 Kia Rio5 A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
