Pontiac Solstice 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. “Who can fix my Pontiac Solstice A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Pontiac vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2006 Pontiac. Steer your Pontiac Solstice to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2006 Pontiac Solstice A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. If we suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Pontiac Solstice A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Pontiac Solstice

While your 2006 Pontiac Solstice’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do 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 once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2006 Pontiac Solstice A/C recharges.

Common Pontiac Solstice A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Pontiac Solstice A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. 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. And smelly A/C in a 2006 Pontiac Solstice? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Solstice.

Questions About 2006 Pontiac Solstice A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Solstice 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 do I get hot air from my Solstice A/C? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Solstice’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.
