A/C Service for Buick Roadmaster

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 wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Buick Roadmaster?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Buick vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1996 Buick A/C systems. Bring your Buick Roadmaster to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1996 Buick Roadmaster 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 Roadmaster A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Buick Roadmaster

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1996 Buick Roadmaster, 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 use Buick’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1996 Buick Roadmaster A/C recharges.

Other Buick Roadmaster A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Buick Roadmaster A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm 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 1996 Buick Roadmaster? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Roadmaster’s A/C!

1996 Buick Roadmaster A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my Roadmaster 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Roadmaster 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 can cause an A/C system 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 Roadmaster’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
