A/C Service for Toyota Prius

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 Toyota Prius A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Toyota vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2013 Toyota Prius A/C systems. Steer your Toyota Prius to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2013 Toyota Prius A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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. A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Toyota Prius A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Prius A/C Recharge

While your 2013 Toyota Prius’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 Toyota’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. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2013 Toyota Prius A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Toyota Prius A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Toyota Prius A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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 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. And smelly A/C in a 2013 Toyota Prius? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Prius — without all the sweat puddles!

2013 Toyota Prius A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Prius air conditioning colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What’s making my Prius 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 Prius’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
