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 Chevrolet Astro?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Chevrolet vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1987 Chevrolet A/C systems. Bring your Chevrolet Astro to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1987 Chevrolet Astro’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Chevrolet Astro A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
Let's say we repair your 1987 Chevrolet Astro 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Chevrolet guidelines. 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 good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1987 Chevrolet Astro A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Chevrolet Astro A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1987 Chevrolet Astro? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Astro — without all the sweat puddles!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1987 Chevrolet Astro A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
