During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1985 GMC K1500 Suburban’s 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 think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your GMC K1500 Suburban A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Other GMC K1500 Suburban A/C Problems

Hot air is a common GMC K1500 Suburban A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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 suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1985 GMC K1500 Suburban? 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 K1500 Suburban — without all the sweat puddles!

1985 GMC K1500 Suburban A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my K1500 Suburban 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 do I get hot air from my K1500 Suburban A/C? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • What can cause an A/C system 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 K1500 Suburban’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
