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 take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Chevrolet C1500 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Chevrolet vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1997 Chevrolet A/C systems. Steer your Chevrolet C1500 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’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Chevrolet C1500 A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
Let's say we repair your 1997 Chevrolet C1500 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. 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 ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1997 Chevrolet C1500 A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Chevrolet C1500 A/C problem you may encounter. 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. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1997 Chevrolet C1500? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 C1500 — without all the sweat puddles!
