There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my GMC K1500 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know GMC vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1986 GMC 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 1986 GMC K1500 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 K1500 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 1986 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to GMC's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1986 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 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1986 GMC K1500? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your K1500’s A/C!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1986 GMC K1500 A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
