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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Kia Sportage?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Kia vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1996 Kia A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Kia Sportage
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1996 Kia Sportage 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 we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Kia Sportage A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
While your 1996 Kia Sportage’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll use Kia’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1996 Kia Sportage A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Kia Sportage A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. 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 1996 Kia Sportage? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Sportage’s A/C!
