When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Ford E-150 Econoline A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Ford vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1997 Ford E-150 Econoline A/C systems. Steer your Ford E-150 Econoline to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1997 Ford E-150 Econoline A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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” 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 any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

A/C Recharge for Ford E-150 Econoline

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1997 Ford E-150 Econoline, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Ford guidelines. 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 ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1997 Ford E-150 Econoline A/C recharges.

Common Ford E-150 Econoline A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Ford E-150 Econoline A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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 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 1997 Ford E-150 Econoline? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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.

1997 Ford E-150 Econoline A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my E-150 Econoline air conditioner colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my E-150 Econoline 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.
  • 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 E-150 Econoline’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
