Oldsmobile, a brand of automobile founded by Ramson E. Olds was sold in the United States from 1897 to 2004. Yes, Oldsmobile vehicles have been around for 107 years only. However, 107 years in the auto industry was actually considered as Oldsmobile biggest achievement. When it was phased out, Oldsmobile was the oldest surviving American automobile marque and one of the oldest in the whole wide world, after Daimler and Peugeot. Oldsmobile have produced 35.2 million vehicles, including no less than 14 million which was built at its Lansing factory.

All these Oldsmobile models were equipped with a complete set of satisfying amenities designed to provide comfort and convenience to every Oldsmobile owner. On top of the list of these comfort and convenience features is the Oldsmobile AC system. With just a push of a button or a slide of a lever, we can make the seamless transition from heating to cooling and back again.

Vehicles are found to have primarily three different types of A/C systems. Although each of the three differs in kinds, the goal, the design and its components are very similar to one another. The compressor, the condenser, the receiver-drier, the thermostatic expansion valve, the evaporator and the likes makes up your Oldsmobile air conditioning system. Among these four components, it's the AC compressor that possesses a very crucial job.

This is how your Oldsmobile AC compressor works. The AC compressor circulates a liquid refrigerant, commonly called Freon. It moves the Freon from an evaporator through a condenser and expansion valve, right back to the evaporator. The evaporator is right in front of a fan pulling the hot, humid air out of your Oldsmobile's interior. The refrigerant then makes the hot air's moisture condense into drops of water, removing the heat from the air. And once the water is removed, the thing we called "cool" air is sent back into our car's interior.

So, if you still feel hot even if you have turned on your air conditioners, perhaps one of your Oldsmobile AC components is damaged. For replacement needs, trust only Parts Train. A reliable auto parts provider like Parts Train will surely provide you all that you need.
