When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Subaru RX A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Subaru vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1989 Subaru RX A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Subaru RX
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1989 Subaru RX A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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 Subaru RX 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.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 1989 Subaru RX, 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 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 good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1989 Subaru RX A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Subaru RX A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1989 Subaru RX? 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 technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your RX.
