Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. 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 Cutlass Ciera?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Oldsmobile vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1986 Oldsmobile A/C systems. Bring your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera 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 Cutlass Ciera A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Cutlass Ciera A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, 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 use Oldsmobile’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged 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 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Cutlass Ciera’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Cutlass Ciera air conditioning 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 Ciera 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.
  • What can cause an A/C system 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 Ciera’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
