Chevrolet C20 Suburban A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Chevrolet C20 Suburban?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Chevrolet vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1985 Chevrolet. Steer your Chevrolet C20 Suburban to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Chevrolet C20 Suburban A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

C20 Suburban A/C Recharge

While your 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban’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. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban A/C recharges.

Common Chevrolet C20 Suburban A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Chevrolet C20 Suburban A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 C20 Suburban — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban A/C Systems

  • How do I make my C20 Suburban air conditioning 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 is my C20 Suburban A/C blowing hot 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your C20 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.
