Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Buick Skylark A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Buick vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1988 Buick A/C systems. Bring your Buick Skylark to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1988 Buick Skylark A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Buick Skylark A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 1988 Buick Skylark, 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Buick's recommendations. 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 all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1988 Buick Skylark A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Buick Skylark A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems include 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1988 Buick Skylark? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 Skylark — without all the sweat puddles!
