A/C Repair Service for Your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon

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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Oldsmobile vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1985 Oldsmobile A/C systems. Bring your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon’s 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon 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.

Cutlass Salon A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon, 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 after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon A/C recharges.

Common Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 Cutlass Salon — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Cutlass Salon air conditioner 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 Salon A/C blowing hot air? 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 can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Cutlass Salon’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.
