A/C Repair Service for Your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Ford vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1986 Ford. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1986 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon 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 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 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

E-150 Econoline Club Wagon A/C Recharge

While your 1986 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon’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 Ford guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1986 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon A/C recharges.

Common Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon 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 suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1986 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your E-150 Econoline Club Wagon.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1986 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon A/C Systems

  • How can I make my E-150 Econoline Club Wagon 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 E-150 Econoline Club Wagon A/C blowing hot 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.
  • 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 E-150 Econoline Club Wagon’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
