Subaru Impreza A/C Repair

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 wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Subaru Impreza?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Subaru vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2003 Subaru A/C systems. Steer your Subaru Impreza to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2003 Subaru Impreza’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. 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 Subaru Impreza 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.

Impreza A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2003 Subaru Impreza A/C system. We will also perform 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 Subaru's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, 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 2003 Subaru Impreza A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Subaru Impreza A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Subaru Impreza A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is 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 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2003 Subaru Impreza? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Impreza’s A/C!

2003 Subaru Impreza A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my Impreza air conditioner 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.
  • What’s making my Impreza 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? 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 Impreza’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
