Chevrolet Chevette 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. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Chevrolet Chevette A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! 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 Chevette to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1986 Chevrolet Chevette 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 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Chevrolet Chevette A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Chevette A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1986 Chevrolet Chevette A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Chevrolet’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1986 Chevrolet Chevette A/C recharges.

Common Chevrolet Chevette A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Chevrolet Chevette A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1986 Chevrolet Chevette? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Chevette — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 1986 Chevrolet Chevette A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Chevette air conditioner colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Chevette 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 can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Chevette’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.
