About Hino

Japan occupied China in 1941, which opened up a huge market for Japanese industrial products. It also resulted in a trade embargo with the U.S., but rather than capitulating to American pressure, the government of Japan instead embarked on an extensive armament program which strengthened many local manufacturing firms, especially Tokyo Automobile. Around the same time a decision was made to change the name to Diesel Motor Industry Company, Ltd.

Common Hino 238 A/C Problems

One driver who’s Hino 238 had around 282,000 miles on it stated that while cleaning it and performing maintenance they noticed that its blower motor was very low, and after tapping it several times it returned to normal. The truck was then taken to a mechanic where the technicians reviewed the blower motor and decided to replace it, and though the new model ran with the correct speed, no cold air was produced.

The switch was checked which still worked and the light button for the A/C display was on. The truck was again taken to a technician who revealed that A/C switches in some Hino’s have been known for burning out, damaging both the wires and connectors simultaneously. They checked the radio and light fuse along with the refrigerant level.
