Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Nissan Maxima A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Nissan vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1996 Nissan Maxima A/C systems. Steer your Nissan Maxima to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1996 Nissan Maxima A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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 Maxima A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 1996 Nissan Maxima, 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 Nissan's recommendations. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, 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 1996 Nissan Maxima A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Nissan Maxima A/C problem you may 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 suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1996 Nissan Maxima? 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 Maxima — without all the sweat puddles!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1996 Nissan Maxima A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
