Mazda CX-3 A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Mazda CX-3?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Mazda vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2018 Mazda CX-3 A/C systems. Steer your Mazda CX-3 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2018 Mazda CX-3’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 Mazda CX-3 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 CX-3

While your 2018 Mazda CX-3’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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Mazda guidelines. The A/C system is recharged 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 know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2018 Mazda CX-3 A/C recharges.

Common Mazda CX-3 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Mazda CX-3 A/C problem you may 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 2018 Mazda CX-3? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your CX-3.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2018 Mazda CX-3 A/C Systems

  • Can I make my CX-3 air conditioner colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my CX-3 A/C blowing hot air? 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? 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 CX-3’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
