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 C2500 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 C2500 Suburban’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 think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Chevrolet C2500 Suburban A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Chevrolet C2500 Suburban

While your 1998 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Chevrolet's recommendations. 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. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1998 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Chevrolet C2500 Suburban A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Chevrolet C2500 Suburban A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 1998 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 C2500 Suburban — without all the sweat puddles!

1998 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my C2500 Suburban 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 C2500 Suburban 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your C2500 Suburban's A/C system.
