A/c problems in 2002 buick rendezvous

My air conditioning in my 2002 buick rendezvous quit working. I tried charging it myself and everything leaked out on the ground when I did it. I also heard a hissing sound. Any suggestions as to what it is? I am thinking the lower a/c hose has a hole in it.

It does sound like your AC line has a hole in it. I would replace the hose if you can see the leak. if you cannot see it then run a dye through the system and then put on the pair of UV leak detector glasses that you can buy at the parts store for like $15

My Buick Rendezvous is straight up dead. When we change the battery the light turns on then dies after 20 minutes. When we try to jump it, it wines then immediately shuts down.

My air conditioner compressor in my 2002 buick rendezvous stopped working.

Take to a shop that has the proper gauges and ability to vacuum the system properly. Do not simply try and add Freon as it only causes an air gap and false readings. In addition, some cars require a resetting of values on the cars computer brain in order to function properly.

Buick rendezvous overheating

This is all getting to be pretty bad when no one listens!?
All Buick Rendezvous overheat! It's a badly designed system with no upper engine compartment ventilation! It's one thing to save on mileage with a hot engine but another when it's so hot it burns out all gaskets and seals everywhere! Counter productive to say to least! People are spending tons of money on repairs that are not necessary!
I bought a 2002 Rendezvous knowing full well that I could fix the overheating problem! I got a good deal on the SUV and bought it knowing it was an easy repair! The previous owner spent a bundle on new head-gaskets and still the overheating problem did not leave! I purchased it knowing full well what the problem "was" !
I did an inspection on the (engine compartment) The engine sits quite high in there and the heat of the engine has no escape from the compartment. It's closed off and the engine sits in it's own heat getting hotter and hotter destroying gaskets and all other heat related injuries ! The cooling fans direct the incoming air to the bottom and out below the problem!
My inspection shows trails where the heat did escape around the upper rubber seal at two ends over the engine compartment.. Those very small openings were the only means of heat escape, but not nearly enough! The heat there was so intense it started bubbling and blistering the paint on the hood! That was all the information I needed to be confident in the purchase of this 2002 Buick Rendezvous!
After the purchase I cut the rubber seal down away from the hood at least one inch by two feet from center...NOTE! I was also careful not to remove the guard area for rain water. The lower section of the rubber guard takes care of that. For a test to be sure I sprayed water over the windshield and not a drop spilled onto the engine.....
Well it's been two years and not one over-heating problem since...... I have photos on the work done if you like......
