A/C Service for Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Oldsmobile vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C systems. Bring your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais

While your 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 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 all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C recharges.

Other Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C problem you may encounter. 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Cutlass Calais.

1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my Cutlass Calais 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 do I get hot air from my Cutlass Calais 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.
  • 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 Cutlass Calais’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
