There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Oldsmobile Bravada A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Oldsmobile vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1996 Oldsmobile. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Oldsmobile Bravada
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called 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 Bravada A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada, we’ll also do 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Oldsmobile's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Oldsmobile Bravada 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Bravada’s A/C!
