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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Kia Sorento A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Kia vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2020 Kia Sorento A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Kia Sorento

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2020 Kia Sorento’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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 system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your Sorento

Let's say we repair your 2020 Kia Sorento A/C system. We will also perform 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 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 2020 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes 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 2020 Kia Sorento? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Sorento’s A/C!

Questions About 2020 Kia Sorento A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Sorento air conditioning 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.
  • Why is my Sorento A/C blowing hot air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Sorento’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
