When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Oldsmobile Silhouette A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Oldsmobile vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2001 Oldsmobile. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Oldsmobile Silhouette
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Oldsmobile Silhouette 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.
While your 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 use Oldsmobile’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Oldsmobile Silhouette A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette? 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 Silhouette.
When you’ve got car A/C problems, don’t sweat it. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, our technicians are qualified to diagnose issues and repair your 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette A/C system. Beat the heat and come in today for a refreshingly easy A/C performance check.
