A/C Repair Service for Your Buick Regal

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Buick Regal A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Buick vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1997 Buick A/C systems. Bring your Buick Regal to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1997 Buick Regal A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Buick Regal A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Regal A/C Recharge

While your 1997 Buick Regal’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do 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. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1997 Buick Regal A/C recharges.

Other Buick Regal A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Buick Regal A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 1997 Buick Regal? 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 Regal — without all the sweat puddles!

1997 Buick Regal A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Regal 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 Regal 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.
  • 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 Regal’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
