1988 Subaru XT A/C Repair Near You

Subaru XT A/C Repair

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 it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Subaru XT A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Subaru vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1988 Subaru A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Subaru XT

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1988 Subaru XT A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Subaru XT 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.

XT A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1988 Subaru XT, 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Subaru's recommendations. 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 ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1988 Subaru XT A/C recharges.

Common Subaru XT A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Subaru XT A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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 suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1988 Subaru XT? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your XT’s A/C!

1988 Subaru XT A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my XT air conditioning colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • What’s making my XT A/C put out warm 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 XT's A/C system.
