Nearest A/C Repair for Your 1985 Pontiac Fiero

A/C Service for Pontiac Fiero

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. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Pontiac Fiero A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Pontiac vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1985 Pontiac A/C systems. Steer your Pontiac Fiero to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1985 Pontiac Fiero’s 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 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Pontiac Fiero 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.

Fiero A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1985 Pontiac Fiero 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. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Pontiac guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1985 Pontiac Fiero A/C recharges.

Common Pontiac Fiero A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Pontiac Fiero A/C problem you may 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 1985 Pontiac Fiero? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Fiero’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1985 Pontiac Fiero A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Fiero air conditioner 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Fiero A/C? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Fiero’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.
