Convenient & Local 1986 Saab 900 A/C Repair

A/C Repair Service for Your Saab 900

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 take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Saab 900 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Saab vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1986 Saab. Bring your Saab 900 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1986 Saab 900 A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Saab 900 A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your 900

While your 1986 Saab 900’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). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Saab's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1986 Saab 900 A/C recharges.

Other Saab 900 A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Saab 900 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1986 Saab 900? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your 900.

Questions About 1986 Saab 900 A/C Systems

  • How can I make my 900 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.
  • What’s making my 900 A/C put out warm air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your 900’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.
