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. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Alfa Romeo GTV-6?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Alfa Romeo vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1983 Alfa Romeo. Bring your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. If any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV-6, 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 Alfa Romeo’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV-6? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your GTV-6 — without all the sweat puddles!
