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. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Lincoln MKZ A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Lincoln vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2018 Lincoln. Steer your Lincoln MKZ to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2018 Lincoln MKZ’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 Lincoln MKZ 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.
Let's say we repair your 2018 Lincoln MKZ A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Lincoln's recommendations. 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 ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2018 Lincoln MKZ A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Lincoln MKZ A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. 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. And smelly A/C in a 2018 Lincoln MKZ? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your MKZ — without all the sweat puddles!
