A/C Repair Service for Your Mazda Tribute

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Mazda Tribute?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Mazda vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2011 Mazda A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Mazda Tribute

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2011 Mazda Tribute’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.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Mazda Tribute A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Tribute A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2011 Mazda Tribute 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 Mazda's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2011 Mazda Tribute A/C recharges.

Common Mazda Tribute A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Mazda Tribute A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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 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 2011 Mazda Tribute? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 Tribute — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 2011 Mazda Tribute A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Tribute 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 do I get hot air from my Tribute A/C? 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 Tribute’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
