A/C Service for GMC Savana 1500

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. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my GMC Savana 1500 A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know GMC vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1996 GMC Savana 1500 A/C systems. Bring your GMC Savana 1500 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1996 GMC Savana 1500 A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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 Savana 1500 A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Savana 1500 A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1996 GMC Savana 1500, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). 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 we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1996 GMC Savana 1500 A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting GMC Savana 1500 A/C Problems

Hot air is a common GMC Savana 1500 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1996 GMC Savana 1500? 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 Savana 1500 — without all the sweat puddles!

1996 GMC Savana 1500 A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Savana 1500 air conditioning 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 Savana 1500 A/C? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Savana 1500’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
