1998 Pontiac Trans Sport A/C Repair Near You

Pontiac Trans Sport A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. 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. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Pontiac vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport A/C systems. Bring your Pontiac Trans Sport to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport 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 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 refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Trans Sport A/C Recharge

While your 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport’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). 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 once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1998 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 indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm 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 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Trans Sport.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport A/C Systems

  • 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Trans Sport 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a 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 Trans Sport’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
