Nearest A/C Repair for Your 1990 Honda Civic

A/C Service for Honda Civic

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Honda Civic?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Honda vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1990 Honda A/C systems. Bring your Honda Civic to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1990 Honda Civic’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Honda Civic 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.

Recharge the A/C in Your Civic

Let's say we repair your 1990 Honda Civic A/C system. We will also perform 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 Honda guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1990 Honda Civic A/C recharges.

Common Honda Civic A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Honda Civic A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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 may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1990 Honda Civic? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 Civic — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1990 Honda Civic A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Civic 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 is my Civic A/C blowing hot air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? 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 Civic’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
