Oldsmobile Aurora A/C Repair

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Oldsmobile Aurora A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Oldsmobile vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1996 Oldsmobile A/C systems. Steer your Oldsmobile Aurora to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora 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 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 Oldsmobile Aurora 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.

A/C Recharge for Oldsmobile Aurora

Let's say we repair your 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll use Oldsmobile’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 are trained to efficiently perform 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Oldsmobile Aurora A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Oldsmobile Aurora A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is 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. 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. And smelly A/C in a 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora? 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 Aurora — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Aurora 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 do I get hot air from my Aurora A/C? 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? 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 Aurora’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
