There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Nissan Altima?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Nissan vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2004 Nissan A/C systems. Bring your Nissan Altima to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2004 Nissan Altima A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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. A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Nissan Altima 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.
Let's say we repair your 2004 Nissan Altima A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Nissan guidelines. 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 know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2004 Nissan Altima A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Nissan Altima A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this 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 2004 Nissan Altima? 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 Altima.
