A/C Repair Service for Your Chevrolet Colorado

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Chevrolet Colorado 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 2018 Chevrolet A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Chevrolet Colorado

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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 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

Let's say we repair your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Chevrolet's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2018 Chevrolet Colorado A/C recharges.

Other Chevrolet Colorado A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Chevrolet Colorado A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado? 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 Colorado.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2018 Chevrolet Colorado A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Colorado air conditioner colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Colorado 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? 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 Colorado’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
