A/C Service for Oldsmobile Toronado

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Oldsmobile Toronado A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Oldsmobile vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1984 Oldsmobile. Steer your Oldsmobile Toronado to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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 Oldsmobile Toronado A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Toronado A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado A/C system. We will also perform 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Oldsmobile guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Oldsmobile Toronado A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Oldsmobile Toronado 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. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 Toronado’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Toronado air conditioner colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • What’s making my Toronado 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? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Toronado’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
