I am having problems with my air conditioning again. My A/C is blowing warm air and this is the second time I have had this problem since buying my 2015 Sierra less than 6 months ago. A few months ago I had the exact same problem and my dealership diagnosed it as a leaking hose and all of the freon was gone. They had to order a new hose and it took a week for it to come in. They installed the new hose and added more freon and it has been fine for the past 3 months until today. This morning I noticed that the air coming out was warmer than normal even though I have the A/C set at 65 degrees. It was fine yesterday. I am going to monitor it and see if it gets worse and if so make an appointment to take it to the dealer again.

 

Just wondering if anyone else has had to replace the hose or had a freon issue with their 2014 or 2015 Sierra / Silverado?

Did they check the whole system for leaks? It seems that you may have another leak somewhere else and the dealership replaced the wrong part.

I had the same problem, took it to the dealer and they said the same thing. Cracked hose and no freon... Parts ordered and repaired.. Worked one day and then back to not blowing cold air.. Took it to a different dealership and they said it was the air compressor/condesnor.. Replaced it and now it works like it should. No problems... Btw my truck had only 2000 miles on it. I only had it for 2.5 months.. Hope you get yours fixed ..

Quite often A/C leaks are caused by a loose fitting on the suction side or high pressure side The O-ring in the fitting does not get compressed properly when the fitting is insufficiently tightened, causing a leak. They have R134 leak detectors, it really is not that hard to pinpoint the problem.

 

I typically use refrigerant oil to lubricate the fitting threads when I work on A/C systems. Also, when they replace the A/C compressor, they should also replace the receiver/dryer.

I only mention this because this idiot (talking about myself) did this the other day. My AC out of the driver vents felt warmer than usual and I was starting to get upset until I looked at the passenger side temperature and it was on 85! I hit the sync button and everything immediately started cooling off like normal. Have you checked this? I know it seems stupid but, stupid guy right here haha

When one of the blend door actuators quits working, then it does not matter what your temperature setting is, it will blow only cold air through that side! But in the OP it really seems like his problem is lack of refrigerant, hence no cooling.

Yes, I checked this and just about every other combination of settings and it's still blowing warm air. The temperature coming out of the vents has been at ambient or a few degrees higher all day. I'm dropping it off tomorrow.

Thanks for the heads up on the condenser. I just dropped it off at a different dealer during lunch today and they pulled up a TSB on it. The first time it happened I had 4,000 miles and I currently have 7,000 miles. My adviser told me that they had another truck come in Monday with the same problem and that they diagnosed his as a leaky hose. His truck is still there because they are having a hard time locating a replacement hose for it. I expect to hear back from the dealer tomorrow on what the issue is and will provide update when available.

I got my truck back yesterday afternoon after it spent 7 days at the dealership waiting for a bracket to come in. I've got cold air blowing again and my repair order says "performed PIT5337." Hopefully this is a permanent fix and not a 90 day fix like last time.

Nowadays It seems that a permanent fix is a fix that lasts until the warranty runs out.

I guess I'll have to wait and see.

Same thing happened to me today. Worked fine this morning, when i left work this aftenoon, warm air from vents. I gave it a listen turning ac on and off and never heard my compressor kick on. Calling dealership in the morning. Sucks

Got truck back. Cold air again. Leaking hose from compresor to condensor. Changed hose and added a bracket. Said it was a design flaw. Why not do a recall or something?

      Hey guys I know there are threads out there for it but I have looked and can't seem to narrow it down.
       
      I currently have a 2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain leveled 2.5". I am looking at upgrading to a Zone 4.5" and running bigger tires on my stock 20" All Terrain wheels. The question I have though is about the shocks. I want to upgrade my shocks right now, looking at the bilsteins. But my question is if I bought the bilstein (5100's) would I be able to run those on the 2.5" level and the 4.5" lift? I appreciate any help and information! Pictures or experience with either setup or future setup is helpful as well!

      Planning on leveling my 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE with the 3” front 2” rear MOTOFAB leveling kit. Currently have stock wheels/tires on it which are 255/70R17. Thinking about jumping up to 18” wheels instead but wanted to know how much of a difference the 17” to 18” jump would make in appearance. 
       
      I was able to find plenty of pictures with 18” wheels but are there any photos out there of leveled /lifted trucks with 17” rims?

      Hello all, I’m sorry if this isn’t posted in the right section but I couldn’t find any results for the problem I’m having. 
      So a little bit of back story.... I have a 2005 Silverado 1500 2wd with 180,xxx miles on it, It’s a good old girl. I recently had a lot of work done to the front end, new rack and pinion assembly, new coils, shocks, spindles, new ucas, new upper ball joints and tie rod ends. I had a shop install on the parts because I don’t have a driveway to work in right now. All the parts replaced were stock oem parts, so well worn out. The truck rides great now much more controlled and steering feel is firm. But I noticed there is about an inch of free play in the steering wheel ( no resistance, no moving the wheel in the free play). 
      What do y’all think it could be? I checked the intermediate steering shaft for play and it is moving with the u-joint at the rack and pinion. Can the gear box be adjusted? 
      Thank y’all for your insight. I don’t just want to fire the parts cannon in vain. Again thank you for all the help!

      Hey folks,
       
      I'm in dire need of a front bumper for my 06 Sierra 1500. There are a few rust holes (Nova Scotia winters ) preventing me from passing my provincial MVI. My question is if a similar generation 1500 Silverado front bumper will fit my Sierra, as a local scrapyard has a magnitude of Chevys but not any feasible Sierra candidates.  I know it wouldn't look too pretty, but this truck is necessity over style. New is out of the question as shipping in NS is ridiculous, cheapest OEM ripoff came to over $600 for a $150 bumper. Any tips or advise would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Thanks guys,
      -Nick
