A/C Repair Service for Your GMC C3500

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my GMC C3500?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with GMC vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1988 GMC C3500 A/C systems. Bring your GMC C3500 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1988 GMC C3500 A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. 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.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your GMC C3500 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

C3500 A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1988 GMC C3500, 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 use GMC’s specifications to evacuate the system. 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 1988 GMC C3500 A/C recharges.

Other GMC C3500 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only GMC C3500 A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm 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 1988 GMC C3500? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 C3500 — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 1988 GMC C3500 A/C Systems

  • How do I make my C3500 air conditioning colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my C3500 A/C blowing hot air? 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 causes A/C system leaks? 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 C3500’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
