1990 Alfa Romeo Spider A/C Repair Near You

Alfa Romeo Spider A/C Repair

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 it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Alfa Romeo Spider A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Alfa Romeo vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider A/C systems. Steer your Alfa Romeo Spider to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Alfa Romeo Spider A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your Spider

While your 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Alfa Romeo guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider A/C recharges.

Other Alfa Romeo Spider A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Alfa Romeo Spider 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 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 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Spider — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Spider air conditioning colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • What’s making my Spider A/C put out warm air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? 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 Spider’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
