We’ve got experience with Oldsmobile vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1985 Oldsmobile A/C systems. Steer your Oldsmobile Calais to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1985 Oldsmobile Calais A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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. A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Oldsmobile Calais A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 1985 Oldsmobile Calais’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). Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Oldsmobile guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1985 Oldsmobile Calais A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Oldsmobile Calais A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1985 Oldsmobile Calais? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Calais.
