Nearest A/C Repair for Your 2016 Nissan Altima

Nissan Altima A/C Repair

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. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Nissan Altima?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Nissan vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2016 Nissan A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Nissan Altima

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2016 Nissan Altima 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 think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." 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 your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Altima A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2016 Nissan Altima A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Nissan's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2016 Nissan Altima A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Nissan Altima A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Nissan Altima A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. 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 2016 Nissan Altima? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Altima’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2016 Nissan Altima A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Altima air conditioning 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 is my Altima A/C blowing hot air? 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.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? 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 Altima’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
