An airy solution

Asked by Scott

I BOUGHT an LX Torana SL202 dual-fuel with factory airconditioning as my daughter's first car. The aircon does not work correctly. Is it worth getting it fixed? The engine has been modified for gas and it starts first time on gas. Should I still run premium petrol every now and then?

WE PUT your question to Mark Lynch of Carcool Airconditioning and his response was that it probably wasn't worth fixing the aircon. He says any repair becomes a restoration with a system fitted to a car nearly 30 years old. If the compressor is black, it is an original Delco and would need major work to be suitable for new ozone-friendly gases. Run the car on petrol occasionally, otherwise seals and other bits in the fuel system dry out and harden, which can lead to other problems.
