Dodge Caravan A/C Repair

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Dodge Caravan A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Dodge vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1996 Dodge A/C systems. Bring your Dodge Caravan to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1996 Dodge Caravan’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. 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. A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Dodge Caravan A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Caravan A/C Recharge

While your 1996 Dodge Caravan’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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Dodge's recommendations. 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 1996 Dodge Caravan A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Dodge Caravan A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Dodge Caravan A/C problem you may encounter. 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1996 Dodge Caravan? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Caravan’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1996 Dodge Caravan A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Caravan 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 is my Caravan A/C blowing hot air? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a 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 Caravan’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
