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?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Oldsmobile vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass A/C systems. Bring your Oldsmobile Cutlass to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass 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 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 A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Cutlass A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Oldsmobile's recommendations. 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 good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass A/C recharges.

Other Oldsmobile Cutlass A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Oldsmobile Cutlass 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 be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Cutlass.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass A/C Systems

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