We know Ford vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1986 Ford. Bring your Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1986 Ford E-250 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 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 Ford E-250 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.

Recharge the A/C in Your E-250 Econoline Club Wagon

While your 1986 Ford E-250 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. 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 1986 Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1986 Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 E-250 Econoline Club Wagon’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1986 Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon A/C Systems

  • How do I make my E-250 Econoline Club Wagon air conditioning 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-250 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-250 Econoline Club Wagon’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
