Saturn SL 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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Saturn SL A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Saturn vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1999 Saturn A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Saturn SL

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1999 Saturn SL A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Saturn SL A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

A/C Recharge for Saturn SL

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1999 Saturn SL, 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). Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Saturn guidelines. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1999 Saturn SL A/C recharges.

Common Saturn SL A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Saturn SL A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1999 Saturn SL? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your SL — without all the sweat puddles!

1999 Saturn SL A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my SL 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 SL A/C blowing hot air? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • 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 SL's A/C system.
