Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh.

We know GMC vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1985 GMC K1500 A/C systems. Steer your GMC K1500 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1985 GMC K1500 A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your GMC K1500 A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
While your 1985 GMC K1500’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per GMC guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1985 GMC K1500 A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential GMC K1500 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1985 GMC K1500? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your K1500.
