A/C Repair Service for Your Buick Regal

Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Buick Regal A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Buick vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1988 Buick A/C systems. Steer your Buick Regal to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1988 Buick Regal A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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 Buick Regal A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Recharge the A/C in Your Regal

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1988 Buick Regal, 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 Buick guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1988 Buick Regal A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Buick Regal A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Buick Regal 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1988 Buick Regal? 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 Regal — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1988 Buick Regal A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Regal air conditioner 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Regal A/C? 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.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Regal's A/C system.
