When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Volvo 244 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Volvo vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1983 Volvo A/C systems. Bring your Volvo 244 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1983 Volvo 244 A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. 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. A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Volvo 244 A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 1983 Volvo 244, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll use Volvo’s specifications to evacuate the system. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, 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 1983 Volvo 244 A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Volvo 244 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1983 Volvo 244? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your 244 — without all the sweat puddles!
