Chevrolet Avalanche A/C Repair

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 lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Chevrolet Avalanche?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Chevrolet vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Chevrolet Avalanche

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche’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 any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called 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 Avalanche A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Avalanche A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche 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 Chevrolet’s specifications to evacuate the system. 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. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Chevrolet Avalanche A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Chevrolet Avalanche A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Avalanche’s A/C!

2013 Chevrolet Avalanche A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my Avalanche 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.
  • What’s making my Avalanche A/C put out warm air? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • 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 Avalanche’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
