Buick LaCrosse A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Buick LaCrosse A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Buick vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2012 Buick A/C systems. Bring your Buick LaCrosse to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2012 Buick LaCrosse A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Buick LaCrosse A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

LaCrosse A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2012 Buick LaCrosse 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Buick guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2012 Buick LaCrosse A/C recharges.

Common Buick LaCrosse A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Buick LaCrosse A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 2012 Buick LaCrosse? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your LaCrosse’s A/C!

2012 Buick LaCrosse A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my LaCrosse 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 LaCrosse 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.
  • What can cause an A/C system 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 LaCrosse's A/C system.
