A/C Service for Pontiac Grand Prix

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. 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 Grand Prix?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Pontiac vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2008 Pontiac. Steer your Pontiac Grand Prix to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Pontiac Grand Prix A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Grand Prix A/C Recharge

While your 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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). 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 ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix A/C recharges.

Common Pontiac Grand Prix A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Pontiac Grand Prix 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 may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix? 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 Prix’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Grand Prix 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 Prix A/C put out warm 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 Grand Prix’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
