Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. 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. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Porsche vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1998 Porsche A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Porsche 911
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1998 Porsche 911 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. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Porsche 911 A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
While your 1998 Porsche 911’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Porsche 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 1998 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. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1998 Porsche 911? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 1998 Porsche 911 A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
