Nearest A/C Repair for Your 1986 Porsche 928

A/C Repair Service for Your Porsche 928

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. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Porsche 928?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Porsche vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1986 Porsche A/C systems. Steer your Porsche 928 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1986 Porsche 928’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. If we suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Porsche 928 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

928 A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1986 Porsche 928, 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 Porsche’s specifications to evacuate the system. 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 good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1986 Porsche 928 A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Porsche 928 A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Porsche 928 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1986 Porsche 928? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 928’s A/C!

Questions About 1986 Porsche 928 A/C Systems

  • Can I make my 928 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.
  • What’s making my 928 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 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 928’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
