Mitsubishi Montero A/C Repair

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 take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Mitsubishi Montero A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Mitsubishi vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2005 Mitsubishi. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Mitsubishi Montero

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2005 Mitsubishi Montero’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 Mitsubishi Montero A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Montero A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2005 Mitsubishi Montero, 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 Mitsubishi guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, 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 2005 Mitsubishi Montero A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Mitsubishi Montero A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Mitsubishi Montero 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 2005 Mitsubishi Montero? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Montero’s A/C!

Questions About 2005 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 do I get hot air from my Montero A/C? 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 can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Montero’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
