Nearest A/C Repair for Your 1996 Chevrolet Blazer

A/C Repair Service for Your Chevrolet Blazer

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Chevrolet Blazer?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Chevrolet vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1996 Chevrolet. Steer your Chevrolet Blazer to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1996 Chevrolet Blazer A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Chevrolet Blazer A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Chevrolet Blazer

While your 1996 Chevrolet Blazer’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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. 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 know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1996 Chevrolet Blazer A/C recharges.

Common Chevrolet Blazer A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Chevrolet Blazer 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1996 Chevrolet Blazer? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Blazer’s A/C!

Questions About 1996 Chevrolet Blazer A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Blazer 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Blazer A/C? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? 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 Blazer's A/C system.
