Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Alfa Romeo 164 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Alfa Romeo vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1993 Alfa Romeo 164 A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Alfa Romeo 164
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1993 Alfa Romeo 164’s 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 Alfa Romeo 164 A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
Let's say we repair your 1993 Alfa Romeo 164 A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Alfa Romeo’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 ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1993 Alfa Romeo 164 A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Alfa Romeo 164 A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1993 Alfa Romeo 164? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your 164.
