When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Porsche Panamera A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Porsche vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2018 Porsche A/C systems. Bring your Porsche Panamera to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2018 Porsche Panamera 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Porsche Panamera A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2018 Porsche Panamera, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Porsche’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2018 Porsche Panamera A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Porsche Panamera A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2018 Porsche Panamera? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 Panamera.
