Volvo 245 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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Volvo 245 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Volvo vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1986 Volvo 245 A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Volvo 245

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1986 Volvo 245 A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Volvo 245 A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Volvo 245

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1986 Volvo 245, 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Volvo 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 know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1986 Volvo 245 A/C recharges.

Common Volvo 245 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Volvo 245 A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1986 Volvo 245? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 245’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1986 Volvo 245 A/C Systems

  • Can I make my 245 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 245 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? 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 245's A/C system.
