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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Porsche 911 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Porsche vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1987 Porsche 911 A/C systems. Bring your Porsche 911 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1987 Porsche 911 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 think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Porsche 911 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.
Let's say we repair your 1987 Porsche 911 A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Porsche guidelines. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, 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 1987 Porsche 911 A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Porsche 911 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. 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. And smelly A/C in a 1987 Porsche 911? 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 911 — without all the sweat puddles!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1987 Porsche 911 A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
