Convenient & Local 2016 Kia Sorento A/C Repair

Kia Sorento A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Kia Sorento?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Kia vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2016 Kia. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Kia Sorento

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2016 Kia Sorento A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Kia Sorento A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your Sorento

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2016 Kia Sorento, 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. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2016 Kia Sorento A/C recharges.

Common Kia Sorento A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Kia Sorento A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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 may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2016 Kia Sorento? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Sorento.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2016 Kia Sorento A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Sorento 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 Sorento 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 causes A/C system leaks? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Sorento's A/C system.
