A/C Service for Pontiac Sunfire

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Pontiac Sunfire A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Pontiac vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1997 Pontiac A/C systems. Bring your Pontiac Sunfire to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire 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 we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use 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 Sunfire 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.

Sunfire A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Pontiac’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, 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 1997 Pontiac Sunfire A/C recharges.

Common Pontiac Sunfire A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Pontiac Sunfire 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Sunfire’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1997 Pontiac Sunfire A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Sunfire air conditioning 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 Sunfire 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.
  • 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 Sunfire's A/C system.
