Chevrolet Cavalier A/C Repair

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. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Chevrolet Cavalier?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Chevrolet vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1998 Chevrolet. Steer your Chevrolet Cavalier to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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 detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Chevrolet Cavalier

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Chevrolet’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Chevrolet Cavalier A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Chevrolet Cavalier A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 Cavalier — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier A/C Systems

  • 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.
  • What’s making my Cavalier A/C put out warm air? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? 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 Cavalier's A/C system.
