GMC K3500 A/C Repair

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my GMC K3500 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with GMC vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1999 GMC K3500 A/C systems. Bring your GMC K3500 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1999 GMC K3500’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your GMC K3500 A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

K3500 A/C Recharge

While your 1999 GMC K3500’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. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1999 GMC K3500 A/C recharges.

Common GMC K3500 A/C Problems

Hot air is a common GMC K3500 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. 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. 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. And smelly A/C in a 1999 GMC K3500? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your K3500 — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 1999 GMC K3500 A/C Systems

  • How do I make my K3500 air conditioning 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.
  • What’s making my K3500 A/C put out warm air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • 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 K3500's A/C system.
