AIR CONDITIONER - 1999 Chevy Silverado

Aug 2020 previous owner took truck into ASE NAPA Service Center (24mo/24kMls Warranty) to have the Air Conditioner repaired. Was charged for Replacing the A/C Compressor Belt, Tensioner, Accumulator and recharged it with added dye. We bought it a week later. within 400 miles, the Fluid blew out in the engine compartment, we took it in for repair. "They" said, could find nothing wrong, maybe something didn't seat right?! Now AGAIN, the first time we used it this season, it did it again, called in for appt., They said, "Something" is causing pressure to build, Appt. THREE weeks out in record setting temperatures, I am NOT happy! What could cause this? I am concerned they may have actually NOT done the work they said they did, thinking, knowing the long time customer of theirs was bringing it in to make repairs to sell it, thinking they would never see it again, and charged him for it anyway? and now maybe trying to milk their way thru the warranty period with a temporary recharge instead of really fixing it? Am I being paranoid, or why hasn't this ASE certified Napa Shop been able fixed this issue in two visits? Suggestions on what could be causing this pressure and blowing the fluid out repeatedly would be appreciated.Thanks in advance ~Wendall

Impossible to tell without being with the vehicle, but sounds like a clogged orifice tube.

When i turn my A/C on it blows hot air and there is a leek on my pasenger side dash board. what is it

Had exact same problem with my 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500. Would blow hot air thru drivers vents only and sometimes if I turned truck off and restarted would blow air conditioner for a bit. Rec'd recall letter from Chevrolet in January for this problem.

2001 chevy silverado heater /a/c blower is working in all speed positions , but not any volume of air out the vents

check your owners manual and see if you have an inside cab air filter for the heater/air cond. When they get clogged, they restrict the air flow.

I just got a 1999 chevy silverado 2wd and the temp reaches 210 but the air dosnt blow hot

1.)heater core restricted-check both heater hoses coming from the heater core if one is cold your heater core is restricted and you will need to flush the core.
2.)Your air mix door actuator in the vehicle is inoperative and you will need to replace it.It is located on the bottom of the heater case in the center of the vehicle.It mounts straight up with a couple bolts.

Chevy silverado 2006 lights "service air bag"

First of all you need to get this problem fixed ASAP. While the airbag light is illuminated, your SDM (Sensing and Diagnostic Module aka: the brain of your airbag system) shuts of power to the airbags. In which, if you are in an accident your airbags will not deploy while this light is illuminated. You need to take your vehicle to a GM dealership. A Tech 2 scantool is needed to retrieve the code from the SDM. Hopefully it won't be a costly repair, but is something that defineatly needs to be corrected soon. Good luck and hope all works well.

Where is the fuse for air conditioner?for 1999 chevy silverado? air conditioner does not get cold

The fuse is either in the fuse compartment on the side of the dash when the drivers door is open, or under the hood on driver side in a black box. Look on fuse cover it should show what each fuse is for.

Chevy 2001 2500hd, sounds like a air leak when running the air conditioner. someone told me it was a belt on the air conditioner that was causing the air leak sound.

FREON ENTERING THE EVAPORATOR WILL SOUND LIKE AN AIR LEAK. THE ORIFICE CAN SOUND LIKE ITS HISSING.

HAVE A SERVICE CENTER CHECK THE ORIFICE TUBE, MAY NOT BE INSTALLED PROPERLY.
