Oldsmobile A/C Condenser

Many people see the Oldsmobile brand of vehicles as old. Well, why shouldn't they? After all, the Oldsmobile brand has actually been retired by General Motors since 2004. Before its retirement, the Oldsmobile brand was named as the oldest surviving American automobile brand, and one of the oldest in the world together with Daimler and Peugeot.

The Oldsmobile brand may be old, but Oldsmobile vehicles are certainly not. Oldsmobile vehicles, especially those manufactured in the last few years of the brand, came fully equipped with a lot of modern features designed to provide comfort and convenience to every Oldsmobile passengers. On top of the list of these comfort and convenience features is the Oldsmobile air conditioning system that is equipped with premium components like the Oldsmobile A/C condenser.

The A/C condenser is that part of your vehicle's air conditioning system where heat dissipation occurs. The refrigerant that passes through the A/C evaporator and absorbs as much heat from the vehicle's cabin is passed to the A/C condenser in hot, gaseous form. In the a/c condenser, the hot refrigerant is cooled and condensed into liquid form before it is passed on to the expansion valve. The expansion valve would then pass the refrigerant back to the evaporator and the whole auto air conditioning process starts once again.

The A/C condenser needs as much cold air as it can take to efficiently cool the refrigerant. That is why the condenser is usually installed in front of the radiator, just behind the grille where air enters the engine compartment of the vehicle. The engine fan also aids in the proper functioning of the A/C condenser; and if in case an engine fan couldn't help, like in the case of most front-wheel drive vehicles, an auxiliary, electric fan is used instead.

The air conditioning system of your Oldsmobile simply won't cool your vehicle's cabin if the Oldsmobile A/C condenser is not functioning properly. That's why it is important to take good care of the a/c condenser and check it regularly. If the condenser gets severely damaged, it is important to repair it or replace it at once if you still want to use the A/C system of your car. You should still find replacement Oldsmobile A/C condensers from the GM auto parts center near you or from various replacement and aftermarket A/C condenser manufacturers and dealers.
