1999 Oldsmobile Alero A/C Repair Near You

A/C Repair Service for Your Oldsmobile Alero

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Oldsmobile Alero A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Oldsmobile vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1999 Oldsmobile A/C systems. Bring your Oldsmobile Alero to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1999 Oldsmobile Alero 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 we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Oldsmobile Alero A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Alero A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1999 Oldsmobile Alero, 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 Oldsmobile guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1999 Oldsmobile Alero A/C recharges.

Common Oldsmobile Alero A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Oldsmobile Alero 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1999 Oldsmobile Alero? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 Alero — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1999 Oldsmobile Alero A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Alero 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 Alero 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 can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Alero’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.
