There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Pontiac Fiero?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Pontiac vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1986 Pontiac. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Pontiac Fiero
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1986 Pontiac Fiero A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on 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.
While your 1986 Pontiac Fiero’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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Pontiac guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1986 Pontiac Fiero A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Pontiac Fiero A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems 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 Fiero? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 Fiero — without all the sweat puddles!
