Oldsmobile Toronado A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Oldsmobile Toronado A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Oldsmobile vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1985 Oldsmobile A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Oldsmobile Toronado

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado’s 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Oldsmobile Toronado A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Toronado A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado, 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 use Oldsmobile’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado A/C recharges.

Other Oldsmobile Toronado A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Oldsmobile Toronado A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Toronado’s A/C!

1985 Oldsmobile Toronado A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Toronado air conditioning 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Toronado 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.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? 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.
