We’ve got experience with GMC vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1986 GMC. Bring your GMC K1500 Suburban to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1986 GMC K1500 Suburban A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 K1500 Suburban A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

K1500 Suburban A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1986 GMC K1500 Suburban, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll use GMC’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1986 GMC K1500 Suburban A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting 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. Other common A/C problems 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1986 GMC K1500 Suburban? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 K1500 Suburban’s A/C!

Questions About 1986 GMC K1500 Suburban A/C Systems

  • How can I make my K1500 Suburban air conditioner 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.
  • What’s making my K1500 Suburban A/C put out warm 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 K1500 Suburban’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.
