Volvo 244 A/C Repair

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. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Volvo 244 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Volvo vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1984 Volvo A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Volvo 244

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1984 Volvo 244’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Volvo 244 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Volvo 244

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1984 Volvo 244, 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 Volvo’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1984 Volvo 244 A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Volvo 244 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Volvo 244 A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also include 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 1984 Volvo 244? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your 244.

1984 Volvo 244 A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my 244 air conditioning 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my 244 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 can cause an A/C system leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your 244's A/C system.
