Convenient & Local 2016 Nissan Maxima A/C Repair

A/C Repair Service for Your Nissan Maxima

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Nissan Maxima A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Nissan vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2016 Nissan Maxima 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 2016 Nissan Maxima A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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.” 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 identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Recharge the A/C in Your Maxima

While your 2016 Nissan Maxima’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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. 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 Maxima A/C recharges.

Common Nissan Maxima A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Nissan Maxima A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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 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 2016 Nissan Maxima? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Maxima — without all the sweat puddles!

2016 Nissan Maxima A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my Maxima air conditioner 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 do I get hot air from my Maxima A/C? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Maxima’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
