Convenient & Local 1991 Subaru Legacy A/C Repair

Subaru Legacy A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Subaru Legacy?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Subaru vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1991 Subaru Legacy A/C systems. Bring your Subaru Legacy to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1991 Subaru Legacy’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Subaru Legacy A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Legacy A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1991 Subaru Legacy, we’ll also do 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 Subaru guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1991 Subaru Legacy A/C recharges.

Other Subaru Legacy A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Subaru Legacy A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes 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 1991 Subaru Legacy? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Legacy.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1991 Subaru Legacy A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Legacy air conditioner colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my Legacy A/C blowing hot air? 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? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Legacy's A/C system.
