A/C Repair Service for Your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like lava. 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?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Oldsmobile vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1986 Oldsmobile A/C systems. Bring your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, 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 use Oldsmobile’s specifications to evacuate the system. 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 ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1986 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. 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1986 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. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Custom Cruiser — without all the sweat puddles!

1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Custom Cruiser air conditioning 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 do I get hot air from my Custom Cruiser A/C? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • How does my A/C system get a 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 Custom Cruiser’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
