A/C Service for GMC R3500

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my GMC R3500 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 qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1987 GMC. Bring your GMC R3500 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1987 GMC R3500 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 suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your GMC R3500 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.

Recharge the A/C in Your R3500

Let's say we repair your 1987 GMC R3500 A/C system. We will also perform 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 use GMC’s specifications to evacuate the system. 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 all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1987 GMC R3500 A/C recharges.

Common GMC R3500 A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential GMC R3500 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems 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 may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1987 GMC R3500? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your R3500.

1987 GMC R3500 A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my R3500 air conditioner colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why do I get hot air from my R3500 A/C? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a 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 R3500's A/C system.
