Nearest A/C Repair for Your 2012 Chevrolet Caprice

A/C Service for Chevrolet Caprice

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Chevrolet Caprice A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Chevrolet vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2012 Chevrolet A/C systems. Steer your Chevrolet Caprice to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2012 Chevrolet Caprice A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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 Caprice A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Caprice A/C Recharge

While your 2012 Chevrolet Caprice’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. 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. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2012 Chevrolet Caprice A/C recharges.

Other Chevrolet Caprice A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Chevrolet Caprice A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 2012 Chevrolet Caprice? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Caprice.

Questions About 2012 Chevrolet Caprice A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Caprice 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 Caprice 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? 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 Caprice’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
