A/C Service for Mazda RX-7

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 lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Mazda RX-7 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Mazda vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1986 Mazda A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Mazda RX-7

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1986 Mazda RX-7’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. If we suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Mazda RX-7 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

RX-7 A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1986 Mazda RX-7 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. 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. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1986 Mazda RX-7 A/C recharges.

Other Mazda RX-7 A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Mazda RX-7 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1986 Mazda RX-7? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your RX-7.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1986 Mazda RX-7 A/C Systems

  • Can I make my RX-7 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 is my RX-7 A/C blowing hot air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your RX-7's A/C system.
