When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my GMC C2500?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with GMC vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1988 GMC C2500 A/C systems. Bring your GMC C2500 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1988 GMC C2500’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your GMC C2500 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.
Let's say we repair your 1988 GMC C2500 A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Next, they will evacuate the system according to GMC's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1988 GMC C2500 A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential GMC C2500 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 1988 GMC C2500? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your C2500 — without all the sweat puddles!
