We’ve got experience with Volkswagen vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1988 Volkswagen. Steer your Volkswagen Fox to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1988 Volkswagen Fox 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Volkswagen Fox 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.

Fox A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1988 Volkswagen Fox, 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Volkswagen'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 all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1988 Volkswagen Fox A/C recharges.

Common Volkswagen Fox A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Volkswagen Fox A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1988 Volkswagen Fox? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Fox’s A/C!

Questions About 1988 Volkswagen Fox A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Fox air conditioner 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 Fox 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? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Fox’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
