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 lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat.

We know our way around Chevrolet vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2016 Chevrolet Colorado A/C systems. Bring your Chevrolet Colorado to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2016 Chevrolet Colorado’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. 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 Colorado 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.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2016 Chevrolet Colorado, 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. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2016 Chevrolet Colorado A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Chevrolet Colorado A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2016 Chevrolet Colorado? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Colorado.
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 2016 Chevrolet Colorado A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
