A/C Repair Service for Your Ford Expedition

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Ford Expedition 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 trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1998 Ford A/C systems. Bring your Ford Expedition to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1998 Ford Expedition A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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 Expedition A/C system that can 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.

Recharge the A/C in Your Expedition

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1998 Ford Expedition, 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. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1998 Ford Expedition A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Ford Expedition A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Ford Expedition A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1998 Ford Expedition? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Expedition’s A/C!

Questions About 1998 Ford Expedition A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Expedition 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 is my Expedition A/C blowing hot air? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Expedition’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
