A/C Repair Service for Your Chevrolet C2500 Suburban

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Chevrolet C2500 Suburban A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Chevrolet vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1996 Chevrolet A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Chevrolet C2500 Suburban

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1996 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Chevrolet C2500 Suburban A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

C2500 Suburban A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1996 Chevrolet C2500 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. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1996 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban A/C recharges.

Other Chevrolet C2500 Suburban A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Chevrolet C2500 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 1996 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your C2500 Suburban’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1996 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban A/C Systems

  • How can I make my C2500 Suburban air conditioner 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 do I get hot air from my C2500 Suburban A/C? 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? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your C2500 Suburban’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
