Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my GMC G1500?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know GMC vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1986 GMC G1500 A/C systems. Bring your GMC G1500 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1986 GMC G1500 A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your GMC G1500 A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 1986 GMC G1500, we’ll also do 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 GMC'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 all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1986 GMC G1500 A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential GMC G1500 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is 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 may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1986 GMC G1500? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your G1500’s A/C!
