A/C Repair Service for Your Volkswagen Vanagon

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Volkswagen Vanagon A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Volkswagen vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon A/C systems. Steer your Volkswagen Vanagon to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Volkswagen Vanagon A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your Vanagon

Let's say we repair your 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon 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. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Volkswagen Vanagon A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Volkswagen Vanagon A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm 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 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Vanagon — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Vanagon air conditioner colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • Why is my Vanagon A/C blowing hot air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Vanagon’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
