A/C Repair Service for Your Chevrolet Astro

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Chevrolet Astro?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Chevrolet vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1988 Chevrolet A/C systems. Steer your Chevrolet Astro to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1988 Chevrolet Astro’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Chevrolet Astro A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your Astro

While your 1988 Chevrolet Astro’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 Chevrolet’s specifications to evacuate the system. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1988 Chevrolet Astro A/C recharges.

Common Chevrolet Astro A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Chevrolet Astro 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1988 Chevrolet Astro? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 Astro — without all the sweat puddles!

1988 Chevrolet Astro A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Astro air conditioning colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • What’s making my Astro A/C put out warm air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Astro’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
