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 lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat.

We know our way around Pontiac vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1986 Pontiac. Steer your Pontiac 6000 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1986 Pontiac 6000 A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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 Pontiac 6000 A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 1986 Pontiac 6000, we’ll also do 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 Pontiac'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 all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1986 Pontiac 6000 A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Pontiac 6000 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1986 Pontiac 6000? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your 6000 — without all the sweat puddles!
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 1986 Pontiac 6000 A/C system. Beat the heat and come in today for a refreshingly easy A/C performance check.
