There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Oldsmobile Achieva A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Oldsmobile vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1996 Oldsmobile A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Oldsmobile Achieva
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva’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 suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Oldsmobile Achieva A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do 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). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Oldsmobile's recommendations. 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. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Oldsmobile Achieva A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Achieva — without all the sweat puddles!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
