A/C Service for Ford E-150 Econoline

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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Ford E-150 Econoline?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Ford vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline A/C systems. Bring your Ford E-150 Econoline to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline’s 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 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Ford E-150 Econoline A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

E-150 Econoline A/C Recharge

While your 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 Ford’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Ford E-150 Econoline A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Ford E-150 Econoline A/C problem you may 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your E-150 Econoline.

1985 Ford E-150 Econoline A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my E-150 Econoline air conditioner 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 E-150 Econoline 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.
  • 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 E-150 Econoline’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
