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. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Mazda MX-5 Miata A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Mazda vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata A/C systems. Bring your Mazda MX-5 Miata to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Mazda MX-5 Miata A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata, 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 Mazda guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Mazda MX-5 Miata A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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. 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your MX-5 Miata.
Feeling the heat from your A/C? Our trained technicians can take a look at your 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata A/C system and recommend a repair plan. Schedule A/C service today and get ready to chill out.
