A/C Service for Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

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. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Oldsmobile vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1983 Oldsmobile A/C systems. Bring your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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. A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Custom Cruiser A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, 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. Then, they’ll use Oldsmobile’s specifications to evacuate the system. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C recharges.

Common Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser? 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 technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Custom Cruiser — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Custom Cruiser 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 is my Custom Cruiser A/C blowing hot air? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Custom Cruiser’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.
