You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Oldsmobile Delta 88 A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Oldsmobile vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1988 Oldsmobile. Bring your Oldsmobile Delta 88 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88 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 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 Delta 88 A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

A/C Recharge for Oldsmobile Delta 88

Let's say we repair your 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88 A/C system. We will also perform 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Oldsmobile's recommendations. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, 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 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88 A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Oldsmobile Delta 88 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Oldsmobile Delta 88 A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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. And smelly A/C in a 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Delta 88 — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88 A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Delta 88 air conditioning colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What’s making my Delta 88 A/C put out warm 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 Delta 88’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.
