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. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Pontiac Grand Am A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Pontiac vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1997 Pontiac A/C systems. Bring your Pontiac Grand Am to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1997 Pontiac Grand Am 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Pontiac Grand Am A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 1997 Pontiac Grand Am, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Pontiac'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. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1997 Pontiac Grand Am A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Pontiac Grand Am A/C problem you may encounter. 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 may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1997 Pontiac Grand Am? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Grand Am.
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1997 Pontiac Grand Am A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
