Chevrolet C20 A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Chevrolet C20?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Chevrolet vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1986 Chevrolet A/C systems. Steer your Chevrolet C20 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1986 Chevrolet C20’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Chevrolet C20 A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

A/C Recharge for Chevrolet C20

While your 1986 Chevrolet C20’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 we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1986 Chevrolet C20 A/C recharges.

Other Chevrolet C20 A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Chevrolet C20 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems include 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 1986 Chevrolet C20? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your C20’s A/C!

Questions About 1986 Chevrolet C20 A/C Systems

  • How can I make my C20 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 do I get hot air from my C20 A/C? 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.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your C20’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.
