A/C Service for Chevrolet Avalanche

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 wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Chevrolet Avalanche?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Chevrolet vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2008 Chevrolet A/C systems. Bring your Chevrolet Avalanche to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche’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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Chevrolet Avalanche 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.

A/C Recharge for Chevrolet Avalanche

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche, we’ll also do 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. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche A/C recharges.

Common Chevrolet Avalanche A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Chevrolet Avalanche A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also include 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. And smelly A/C in a 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 Avalanche — without all the sweat puddles!

2008 Chevrolet Avalanche A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my Avalanche air conditioner 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.
  • Why is my Avalanche A/C blowing hot 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 causes A/C system leaks? 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 Avalanche’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
