2012 Nissan Maxima A/C Repair Near You

Nissan Maxima A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Nissan Maxima A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Nissan vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2012 Nissan A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Nissan Maxima

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2012 Nissan Maxima 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 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 refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Nissan Maxima

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2012 Nissan Maxima, we’ll also do 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. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2012 Nissan Maxima A/C recharges.

Other Nissan Maxima A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Nissan Maxima A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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. 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 2012 Nissan Maxima? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Maxima.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2012 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 do I get hot air from my Maxima A/C? 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.
