Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C Repair

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Oldsmobile vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1988 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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 1988 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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 Custom Cruiser A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your Custom Cruiser

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1988 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 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 once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1988 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C problem you may encounter. 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1988 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1988 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Custom Cruiser air conditioning colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Custom Cruiser 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 causes A/C system leaks? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Custom Cruiser's A/C system.
