Convenient & Local 1988 GMC Jimmy A/C Repair

A/C Repair Service for Your GMC Jimmy

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my GMC Jimmy A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around GMC vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1988 GMC A/C systems. Bring your GMC Jimmy to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1988 GMC Jimmy A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. 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 Jimmy A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Jimmy A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1988 GMC Jimmy, 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). Then, they’ll use GMC’s specifications to evacuate the system. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1988 GMC Jimmy A/C recharges.

Common GMC Jimmy A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only GMC Jimmy A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. 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. And smelly A/C in a 1988 GMC Jimmy? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Jimmy.

Questions About 1988 GMC Jimmy A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Jimmy air conditioning 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 do I get hot air from my Jimmy A/C? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? 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 Jimmy’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
