A/C Repair Service for Your Jeep Grand Cherokee

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Jeep Grand Cherokee?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Jeep vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C systems. Bring your Jeep Grand Cherokee to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Grand Cherokee A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Jeep's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C recharges.

Other Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Grand Cherokee.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Grand Cherokee air conditioner 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.
  • What’s making my Grand Cherokee A/C put out warm air? 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 Grand Cherokee’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
