A/C Repair Service for Your Oldsmobile Firenza

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Oldsmobile Firenza A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Oldsmobile vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1987 Oldsmobile A/C systems. Bring your Oldsmobile Firenza to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use 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 Firenza 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.

A/C Recharge for Oldsmobile Firenza

Let's say we repair your 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza 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. The A/C system is recharged 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 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Oldsmobile Firenza A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Oldsmobile Firenza A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza? 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 Firenza.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza A/C Systems

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