Mitsubishi Montero 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 lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Mitsubishi Montero?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Mitsubishi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1996 Mitsubishi Montero A/C systems. Bring your Mitsubishi Montero to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1996 Mitsubishi Montero’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 we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Mitsubishi Montero 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.

Montero A/C Recharge

While your 1996 Mitsubishi Montero’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Mitsubishi's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1996 Mitsubishi Montero A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Mitsubishi Montero A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Mitsubishi Montero A/C problem you may encounter. 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1996 Mitsubishi Montero? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Montero — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 1996 Mitsubishi Montero A/C Systems

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