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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Ram 1500 A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Ram vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2016 Ram. Bring your Ram 1500 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2016 Ram 1500’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." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Ram 1500 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.
While your 2016 Ram 1500’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. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Ram guidelines. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2016 Ram 1500 A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Ram 1500 A/C problem you may 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. 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 2016 Ram 1500? 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 1500.
