Pontiac 6000 A/C Repair

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Pontiac 6000?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Pontiac vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1988 Pontiac A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Pontiac 6000

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1988 Pontiac 6000 A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Pontiac 6000 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

6000 A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1988 Pontiac 6000 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Pontiac's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1988 Pontiac 6000 A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Pontiac 6000 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Pontiac 6000 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1988 Pontiac 6000? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your 6000’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1988 Pontiac 6000 A/C Systems

  • How do I make my 6000 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 is my 6000 A/C blowing hot air? 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? 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 6000’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
