In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2003 Pontiac Grand Am 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 Pontiac Grand Am A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Recharge the A/C in Your Grand Am

Let's say we repair your 2003 Pontiac Grand Am 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 once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2003 Pontiac Grand Am A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Pontiac Grand Am A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Pontiac Grand Am A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is 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 suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Grand Am’s A/C!

2003 Pontiac Grand Am A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my Grand Am air conditioner colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my Grand Am A/C blowing hot 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? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Grand Am's A/C system.
