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.

We know Chevrolet vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1997 Chevrolet A/C systems. Steer your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

C1500 Suburban A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban, 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 use Chevrolet’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban A/C recharges.

Other Chevrolet C1500 Suburban A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Chevrolet C1500 Suburban A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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. 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 C1500 Suburban — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 1997 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban A/C Systems

  • How can I make my C1500 Suburban air conditioner colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my C1500 Suburban A/C blowing hot air? 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.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your C1500 Suburban’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
