Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Chevrolet Corvette A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Chevrolet vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1990 Chevrolet. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Chevrolet Corvette
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1990 Chevrolet Corvette’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 think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use 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 Corvette A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 1990 Chevrolet Corvette’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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Chevrolet's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1990 Chevrolet Corvette A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Chevrolet Corvette A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1990 Chevrolet Corvette? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 Corvette — without all the sweat puddles!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1990 Chevrolet Corvette A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
