Nearest A/C Repair for Your 2019 Kia Sorento

A/C Service for Kia Sorento

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. 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 technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2019 Kia Sorento A/C systems. Bring your Kia Sorento to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2019 Kia Sorento’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Kia Sorento A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Recharge the A/C in Your Sorento

While your 2019 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). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Kia's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2019 Kia Sorento A/C recharges.

Common Kia Sorento A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Kia Sorento A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2019 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.

2019 Kia Sorento A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my Sorento 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 is my Sorento A/C blowing hot air? 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.
  • What can cause an A/C system 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 Sorento’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
