A/C Repair Service for Your Nissan Pathfinder

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Nissan Pathfinder?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Nissan vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2011 Nissan. Bring your Nissan Pathfinder to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2011 Nissan Pathfinder’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Nissan Pathfinder A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping 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 2011 Nissan Pathfinder, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). 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 2011 Nissan Pathfinder A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Nissan Pathfinder A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Nissan Pathfinder A/C problem you may encounter. 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 2011 Nissan Pathfinder? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Pathfinder.

2011 Nissan Pathfinder A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Pathfinder air conditioning colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my Pathfinder A/C blowing hot air? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • 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 Pathfinder’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
