We know our way around Chevrolet vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1998 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 1998 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 any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

C1500 Suburban A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban 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 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 once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban A/C recharges.

Other Chevrolet C1500 Suburban A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Chevrolet C1500 Suburban A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1998 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. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your C1500 Suburban — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban A/C Systems

  • Can I make my C1500 Suburban 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 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 causes A/C system leaks? 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.
