When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Ford vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

A/C Recharge for Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon, 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 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 once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes 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 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your E-350 Econoline Club Wagon — without all the sweat puddles!

1996 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my E-350 Econoline Club Wagon 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 do I get hot air from my E-350 Econoline Club Wagon A/C? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • 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-350 Econoline Club Wagon’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
