We’ve got experience with Ford vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1986 Ford E-250 Econoline A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Ford E-250 Econoline

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1986 Ford E-250 Econoline 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 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 A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Ford E-250 Econoline

Let's say we repair your 1986 Ford E-250 Econoline A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge.

The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1986 Ford E-250 Econoline A/C recharges.

Common Ford E-250 Econoline A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Ford E-250 Econoline 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? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your E-250 Econoline — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 1986 Ford E-250 Econoline A/C Systems

  • How do I make my E-250 Econoline air conditioning 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-250 Econoline 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? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your E-250 Econoline's A/C system.
