2009 Nissan Maxima A/C Repair Near You

A/C Service for Nissan Maxima

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Nissan Maxima A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Nissan vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2009 Nissan. Steer your Nissan Maxima to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2009 Nissan Maxima’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. 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 Nissan Maxima A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Recharge the A/C in Your Maxima

Let's say we repair your 2009 Nissan Maxima 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 use Nissan’s specifications to evacuate the system. 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 2009 Nissan Maxima A/C recharges.

Other Nissan Maxima A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Nissan Maxima A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes 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 2009 Nissan Maxima? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Maxima.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2009 Nissan Maxima A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Maxima air conditioning 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 Maxima 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 Maxima’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
