A/C Service for Lexus GX470

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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Lexus GX470 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Lexus vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2006 Lexus. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Lexus GX470

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2006 Lexus GX470’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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 Lexus GX470 A/C system to 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.

GX470 A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2006 Lexus GX470, 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. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Lexus guidelines. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2006 Lexus GX470 A/C recharges.

Common Lexus GX470 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Lexus GX470 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2006 Lexus GX470? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your GX470 — without all the sweat puddles!

2006 Lexus GX470 A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my GX470 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 do I get hot air from my GX470 A/C? 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 can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your GX470’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.
