1996 Nissan Pathfinder A/C Repair Near You

A/C Repair Service for Your Nissan Pathfinder

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. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Nissan Pathfinder A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Nissan vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1996 Nissan. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Nissan Pathfinder

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1996 Nissan Pathfinder A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Nissan Pathfinder A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Pathfinder A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1996 Nissan Pathfinder, 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 the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1996 Nissan Pathfinder A/C recharges.

Other Nissan Pathfinder A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Nissan Pathfinder A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1996 Nissan Pathfinder? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 Pathfinder.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1996 Nissan Pathfinder A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Pathfinder 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.
  • What’s making my Pathfinder A/C put out warm 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Pathfinder's A/C system.
