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. “Who can fix my Subaru XT A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Subaru vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1989 Subaru XT A/C systems. Bring your Subaru XT to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1989 Subaru XT’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use 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 refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
Let's say we repair your 1989 Subaru XT A/C system. We will also perform 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 Subaru's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1989 Subaru XT A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Subaru XT A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. 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 may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1989 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 technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your XT — without all the sweat puddles!
