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 it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my GMC Savana 1500 A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with GMC vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1998 GMC Savana 1500 A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your GMC Savana 1500

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1998 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 any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your GMC Savana 1500 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for GMC Savana 1500

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1998 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per GMC guidelines. 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 ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1998 GMC Savana 1500 A/C recharges.

Common GMC Savana 1500 A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential GMC Savana 1500 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1998 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Savana 1500’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1998 GMC Savana 1500 A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Savana 1500 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 do I get hot air from my Savana 1500 A/C? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? 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.
