A/C Repair Service for Your Alfa Romeo GTV-6

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Alfa Romeo vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Alfa Romeo GTV-6

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

GTV-6 A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll use Alfa Romeo’s specifications to evacuate the system. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C recharges.

Other Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your GTV-6 — without all the sweat puddles!

1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my GTV-6 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my GTV-6 A/C? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • 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 GTV-6's A/C system.
