Nearest A/C Repair for Your 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport

A/C Service for Pontiac Trans Sport

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. “Who can fix my Pontiac Trans Sport A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Pontiac vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1997 Pontiac A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Pontiac Trans Sport

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 Trans Sport A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Trans Sport A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport, 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. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport A/C recharges.

Common 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 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Trans Sport.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Trans Sport air conditioner colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my Trans Sport A/C blowing hot air? 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? 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 Trans Sport's A/C system.
