Air Conditioning – A/C


Every ride in your car should be cool and comfortable. That’s why we offer a variety of air conditioning services and repairs. We specialize in the following key services:


Our standard A/C Performance Check Service includes the following:

  • visually inspect a/c components
  • run performance test including:
    • system state of charge test
    • system control test
    • perform leak test using approved electronic leak detector

If a slow leak cannot be detected, a dye detection service may need to be performed.


Our A/C Retrofit service may be needed for vehicles made before 1993, which use costly refrigerant for air conditioning.

The service includes the following:

  • visually inspect existing a/c system
  • convert system to use modern refrigerant
  • if conversion cannot be performed, installation of new compressor may be necessary


Keeping your vehicle cool under the hood may only mean a quick part replacement, or it could involve more complex repairs. Our technicians can perform a detailed inspection of your vehicle’s cooling systems to determine what work is needed.

The key components we replace or repair are:

  • radiator
  • radiator cap
  • radiator hoses
  • radiator fan/fan clutch
  • anti-freeze
  • water pump
  • thermostat
  • fan belts
  • serpentine belt
  • cooling sensor
  • heater core
  • heater hoses

Most vehicle manufacturers recommend replacement of the anti-freeze at scheduled intervals. Unlike many service shops that just perform a “drain-and-fill”, Firestone Complete Auto Care provides a complete radiator flushing service that includes the following:

  • inspect system and pressure test for leaks
  • add flush chemicals to the radiator
  • power flush system through flush machine
  • refill system with proper amount of recycled anti-freeze
  • add sealant/lubricant to the system
  • 6-month/6,000-mile limited warranty*

*See your auto advisor for complete terms and conditions of written, limited warranties.

Ask an auto advisor for the right solution for your vehicle.
