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 lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Honda Prelude A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Honda vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1989 Honda Prelude A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Honda Prelude

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1989 Honda Prelude A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use 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 identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Honda Prelude

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1989 Honda Prelude, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Honda guidelines. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system 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. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1989 Honda Prelude A/C recharges.

Common Honda Prelude A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Honda Prelude A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1989 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 technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Prelude’s A/C!

1989 Honda Prelude A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my Prelude 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.
  • What’s making my Prelude A/C put out warm air? 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.
  • What can cause an A/C system 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.
