GMC G1500 A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my GMC G1500 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with GMC vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1988 GMC G1500 A/C systems. Bring your GMC G1500 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1988 GMC G1500 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 suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. 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 refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Recharge the A/C in Your G1500

Let's say we repair your 1988 GMC G1500 A/C system. We will also perform 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. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1988 GMC G1500 A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting GMC G1500 A/C Problems

Hot air is a common GMC G1500 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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 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. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your G1500.

Questions About 1988 GMC G1500 A/C Systems

  • How can I make my G1500 air conditioner colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • Why is my G1500 A/C blowing hot air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your G1500’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
