A/C Repair Service for Your Mazda 3

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Mazda 3?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Mazda vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2018 Mazda A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Mazda 3

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2018 Mazda 3 A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Mazda 3 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

3 A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2018 Mazda 3 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. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Mazda guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2018 Mazda 3 A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Mazda 3 A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Mazda 3 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm 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 2018 Mazda 3? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 3’s A/C!

2018 Mazda 3 A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my 3 air conditioner 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 3 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a 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 3’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
