When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Pontiac Firebird?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Pontiac vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1997 Pontiac Firebird A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Pontiac Firebird

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1997 Pontiac Firebird A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Pontiac Firebird 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.

Firebird A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1997 Pontiac Firebird 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 Pontiac 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 good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1997 Pontiac Firebird A/C recharges.

Common Pontiac Firebird A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Pontiac Firebird A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1997 Pontiac Firebird? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 Firebird — without all the sweat puddles!

1997 Pontiac Firebird A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my Firebird 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Firebird 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 causes A/C system leaks? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Firebird’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
