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. “Who can fix my Pontiac Bonneville A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Pontiac vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1988 Pontiac A/C systems. Bring your Pontiac Bonneville to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1988 Pontiac Bonneville A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. If we suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Pontiac Bonneville A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 1988 Pontiac Bonneville, 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. Then, they’ll use Pontiac’s specifications to evacuate the system. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1988 Pontiac Bonneville A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Pontiac Bonneville 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1988 Pontiac Bonneville? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 Bonneville — without all the sweat puddles!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1988 Pontiac Bonneville A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
