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" is a machine that's run along parts of your GMC C2500 Suburban A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you're ready to get back on the road.

Other GMC C2500 Suburban A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential GMC C2500 Suburban A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems include 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1996 GMC C2500 Suburban? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your C2500 Suburban’s A/C!

Questions About 1996 GMC C2500 Suburban A/C Systems

  • How can I make my C2500 Suburban air conditioner 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 do I get hot air from my C2500 Suburban A/C? 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 can cause an A/C system leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your C2500 Suburban's A/C system.
