To successfully charge an air conditioning system on a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am vehicle, you will need to make sure that your car is running at a speed of 2000 revolutions per minute, and you'll also need to put a portion of a Freon container in a saucepan of hot water, with the upper area sticking up, safely out of the water. Then, use the pressure readouts to decide exactly how much coolant should be added to recharge the system. You'll need to find a table online that dictates precise amounts to add for each specific pressure readout table.

To find the tables and details you need that specify exact amounts of Freon to be added, check online owner forums for Grand Am drivers - there are several of these online, and these message boards are filled with tons of helpful tips on recharging the air conditioning and doing repairs and tweaks all by yourself, in your own garage. Of course, if you're not mechanically inclined, you may struggle to do the work on your own; in this case, you are really better off paying a certified car mechanic to repair or recharge systems in your automobile.

Contacting Pontiac's technical support team via their official website may be a great way to get the instructions and information you need. Large car companies always have fast-loading, modern websites that offer easy-to-use Contact Us services. When you find the Contact Us page, be sure to click on the link, which will direct you to an email form you can send right to Pontiac.

Making changes to your car all by yourself can be tricky; however, if you do learn some basic processes for recharging your air conditioning system, you will save yourself a lot of money on car repairs. In some cases, getting your hands on Freon may be a problem, as its sale is outlawed in certain areas.
