Oldsmobile Toronado A/C Repair

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. Your skin sticks to 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 can! We know Oldsmobile vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1988 Oldsmobile. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Oldsmobile Toronado

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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 Oldsmobile Toronado 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 Oldsmobile Toronado

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1988 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Oldsmobile guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1988 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. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Toronado.

1988 Oldsmobile Toronado A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my Toronado 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 Toronado A/C put out warm air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • 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.
