A/C Service for GMC K1500 Suburban

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my GMC K1500 Suburban A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around GMC vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1999 GMC A/C systems. Bring your GMC K1500 Suburban to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1999 GMC K1500 Suburban’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. If any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” 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 there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

K1500 Suburban A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1999 GMC K1500 Suburban, 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. 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 are trained to efficiently perform 1999 GMC K1500 Suburban A/C recharges.

Common GMC K1500 Suburban A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only GMC K1500 Suburban 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. 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 1999 GMC K1500 Suburban? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your K1500 Suburban — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1999 GMC K1500 Suburban A/C Systems

  • Can I make my K1500 Suburban air conditioner colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my K1500 Suburban A/C blowing hot air? 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.
  • 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 K1500 Suburban’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
