SOURCE: 2002 saturn l100 A/C wont work

ok ac system has a pressure switch that stops the compressor when freon is too low. they actually say it is ok for mobile a/c systems to lose a half pound a year. most a/c systems run on under 2 pounds of freon. so after 3 or 4 years some systems will just quit working. you are at 8 to 9 years so i would recommend you find an independant shop that will top off your a/c and see if it works again. this should not cost more that 50 to 75 bucks. If you were here that is what i would charge. I am in columbus ohio just to let you know. hope this helps and thanks for using fixya

SOURCE: 2006 saturn relay 3 How do you disconnect the steering column from the rack and pinion? I have a leak, will replace the whole r&p unit. I can see how to remove everything except the link to the

You should have a rubber like dust cover, that will be hard
to push up & then the pinch bolt on top of the rack spool,
has to be loosened

Hard to get to

Make note of how things come apart

Your new rack will have to be in the same rotational
position as the one you remove

So count the turns either way on the old rack once you
get it out

Important Note *** You need to know the exact gear ratio
your taking out.
You may be given something rebuilt that has many applications.

So count the turns for ratio & centering to where it was, in order
to get it back in & on your column your having issue with.

2005 Saturn Relay, power steering does not work at low speed.

The first thing you need to do is find the leak, then once that is repaired if the problem persists you need to have the pump pressure tested and if that is ok replace the rack and pinion steering gear.

Power steering hose keeps breaking, even when replaced by high pressure hoses. Replacing rack and pinion does not help either.

A bad seal in the rack and pinion would have caused low pressure from fluid by-passing the seal. This also would have caused noticeably increased effort to steer the vehicle. Excessively high pressure would indicate an issue between the power steering pump and the rack, and since the hoses have been replaced I would focus on the pump. PS, find a real mechanic, not a parts changer.

I would certainly take it back to the dealer who put in the new rack and pinion. Certainly that is where your problem lies as the fluid is going somewhere. Perhaps they did not tighten a connection and the fluid is leaking or the new unit was bad. Google Saturn and see if there was a recall on the L steering system.
