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

Colorado A/C Recharge

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.

Troubleshooting Chevrolet Colorado A/C Problems

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.

2016 Chevrolet Colorado A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Colorado air conditioning 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 is my Colorado A/C blowing hot air? 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? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Colorado’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.
