Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Porsche 911 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Porsche vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2001 Porsche 911 A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Porsche 911
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2001 Porsche 911 A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Porsche 911 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.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2001 Porsche 911, 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Porsche guidelines. The A/C system is recharged 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 2001 Porsche 911 A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Porsche 911 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 2001 Porsche 911? 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 technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your 911.
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 2001 Porsche 911 A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
