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 Honda Civic A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Honda vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1988 Honda. Bring your Honda Civic to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1988 Honda Civic 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 think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Honda Civic A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
Let's say we repair your 1988 Honda Civic A/C system. We will also perform 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 use Honda’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1988 Honda Civic A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Honda Civic 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1988 Honda Civic? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Civic.
