Nearest A/C Repair for Your 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport

A/C Repair Service for Your Pontiac Trans Sport

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. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Pontiac Trans Sport A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Pontiac vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport A/C systems. Bring your Pontiac Trans Sport to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport’s 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Pontiac Trans Sport 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.

Trans Sport A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport A/C system. We will also perform 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. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport A/C recharges.

Other Pontiac Trans Sport A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Pontiac Trans Sport A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Trans Sport — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Trans Sport 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 Trans Sport 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 causes A/C system leaks? 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 Trans Sport’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
