A/C Repair Service for Your Honda Prelude

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. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Honda Prelude?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Honda vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1984 Honda. Steer your Honda Prelude to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1984 Honda Prelude A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Honda Prelude A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Honda Prelude

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1984 Honda Prelude, we’ll also do 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 Honda’s specifications to evacuate the system. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1984 Honda Prelude A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Honda Prelude A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Honda Prelude A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also include 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 be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1984 Honda Prelude? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Prelude’s A/C!

1984 Honda Prelude A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my Prelude air conditioner colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Prelude A/C? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Prelude’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.
