A/C Service for 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 it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Oldsmobile vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1990 Oldsmobile. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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 identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping 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 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, 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 are trained to efficiently perform 1990 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1990 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Custom Cruiser.

1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my Custom Cruiser air conditioner 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 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.
