A/C Service for Chevrolet Cavalier

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Chevrolet Cavalier A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Chevrolet vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier A/C systems. Bring your Chevrolet Cavalier to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. If any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Chevrolet Cavalier A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Recharge the A/C in Your Cavalier

While your 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 Chevrolet 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 ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Chevrolet Cavalier A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Chevrolet Cavalier A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Cavalier.

1987 Chevrolet Cavalier A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Cavalier air conditioning 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 Cavalier A/C? 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 Cavalier’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
