Looking for A/C replacement parts for your Freightliner truck but don’t want to spend a fortune? R&Y Compressors is based in sunny South Florida and since 1989 we’ve supplied the entire country with high quality and remanufactured A/C components.
By the early 1990s Daimler-Benz, the parent company of Freightliner, introduced its Business Class, which is also known as FL series. It was essentially the downsized variant for the FLC112, and shared the same cab with the LKN Mercedes-Benz. Business Class trucks were manufactured with a shortened hood and dual headlights. Industry and financial challenges around this time prompted numerous changes which included installing Dr. Dieter Zetsche as the CEO and shutting down the manufacturing plant at Burnaby, opening a new facility in Ontario at St. Thomas. This combined with various cost reduction plans restored Freightliner’s profitability.
About Freightliner Coronado
The Freightliner Coronado is distinctive for its shortened bumper, forward frontal axle, large bore engine and low tare. All these features result in a truck that maximizes loads and the profits which come from them. It can be purchased in an array of configurations, and has been engineered to operate even in the most demanding weather conditions.
The Coronado has an aerodynamic design which was tested in a full sized wind tunnel, and the cab is made with lightweight aluminum. The lift effort for the hood has been lowered to just 20kgs, and it incorporates both RSC (Roll Stability Control) as well as ESC (Electronic Stability Control). Truckers can operate this vehicle with peace of mind knowing that it has lane departure notifications and because it has the Class 8 designation, the Coronado is well adapted to both vocational and long haul work. For the engine, buyers have the option of the Detroit, Caterpillar or Cummins brands.
Common Freightliner Coronado A/C Problems
Some Coronado truck operators have reported that the vehicle’s A/C will blow out air, but it won’t become cold. When the truck was reviewed by a mechanic it was suspected that the compressor was leaking from the primary bolt. In many cases, the problem was resolved by simply purchasing a new bolt or compressor and then installing it, but this solution is not always foolproof. The reason is because the problem might actually be the result of the lower pressure switch as opposed to the compressor itself.
