A/C Service for GMC K1500

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. 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 qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1990 GMC. Steer your GMC K1500 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1990 GMC K1500’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

K1500 A/C Recharge

While your 1990 GMC K1500’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. 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 once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1990 GMC K1500 A/C recharges.

Other GMC K1500 A/C Problems

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 be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1990 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.

Questions About 1990 GMC K1500 A/C Systems

  • How do I make my K1500 air conditioning 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 is my K1500 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.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your K1500's A/C system.
