Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C Repair

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Alfa Romeo vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C systems. 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 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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" 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 your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

GTV-6 A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Then, they’ll use Alfa Romeo’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting 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 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 A/C Systems

  • How do I make my GTV-6 air conditioning 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 is my GTV-6 A/C blowing hot air? 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.
