There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Kia Sorento A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Kia vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2018 Kia Sorento A/C systems. 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 2018 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 identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
While your 2018 Kia Sorento’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do 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 use Kia’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2018 Kia Sorento A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Kia Sorento A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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 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 2018 Kia Sorento? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 Sorento — without all the sweat puddles!
When you’ve got car A/C problems, don’t sweat it. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, our technicians are qualified to diagnose issues and repair your 2018 Kia Sorento A/C system. Beat the heat and come in today for a refreshingly easy A/C performance check.
