The Buick Enclave is a mid-size crossover and one of their best models. It is a great car for people who love space and a large trunk, as well as those who need to drive around a large number of people on the regular (such as car owners with big families). This engine delivers great performance with smoothness and quietness in the cabin. However, it’s not without its issues. In particular, the vehicle’s climate control is prone to malfunction.

Although this problem is not a common one, it is something that can happen at any time. Buick Enclave AC Problems can range from a minor issue to a major system failure. Here’s some of the most common issues with the AC system of a 2017 Buick Enclave:

Leaks In The System

One of the most common issues with the AC system of a Buick Enclave is leaks. As you can imagine, if the system is leaking it can cause some pretty serious problems. A leak would also cause your AC to work harder and more inefficiently, which would also contribute to your system’s performance issues.

Usually, you can buy a leak detection kit for a car AC system. These kits are very simple to install and can help you pinpoint the source of the leak. However, this may not be a solution that you want to choose. If your AC system is persistently leaking, it may be time to have it replaced. This will ensure that your AC works as efficiently as possible.

Clogged AC Filters

A clogged AC filter can also cause some serious problems with your Buick Enclave’s AC system. When a filter is left to collect dust and debris, it can cause serious issues with your AC system.

This is because when the filter is clogged, the AC system must work harder to keep the air circulating. This will contribute to your AC’s performance issues and could potentially lead to more serious problems in the future. It’s best to have a professional service your Buick Enclave’s AC system so that you can have it checked for any potential issues and ensure that it works as efficiently as possible. For a DIY solution, make sure to regularly clean the filter.

Mold Build Up

Sometimes water can pool in your AC system and cause mold to grow. If you live in a humid area, this can be a serious problem. This is because mold is highly toxic and can cause respiratory issues, on top of the AC spreading bacteria that grows from the mold.

Luckily, it’s easy to prevent this from happening by keeping your AC system clean. It’s best to have the air flowing through your AC at all times and having a professional service the system regularly.
