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. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Volkswagen Jetta?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Volkswagen vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1986 Volkswagen Jetta A/C systems. Bring your Volkswagen Jetta to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1986 Volkswagen Jetta 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 Volkswagen Jetta A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
Let's say we repair your 1986 Volkswagen Jetta 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). Then, they’ll use Volkswagen’s specifications to evacuate the system. 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. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1986 Volkswagen Jetta A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Volkswagen Jetta A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1986 Volkswagen Jetta? 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 Jetta’s A/C!
