We’ve got experience with GMC vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1988 GMC A/C systems. Steer your GMC K2500 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1988 GMC K2500’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your GMC K2500 A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
While your 1988 GMC K2500’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. Then, they’ll use GMC’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1988 GMC K2500 A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential GMC K2500 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1988 GMC K2500? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 K2500’s A/C!
