Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C Repair

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Oldsmobile vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1983 Oldsmobile. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais 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.

A/C Recharge for Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, 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. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C recharges.

Other Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Cutlass Calais — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Cutlass Calais 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 is my Cutlass Calais A/C blowing hot air? 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.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? 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 Cutlass Calais's A/C system.
