Question about 2002 Saturn L-Series

2 Answers

RPMs are idling VERY high...

I have a 2004 Saturn Vue. Standard. I noticed that when I depress the clutch, my RPMs go extremely high! Could this be a problem with the choke sticking open? or the excellerator sticking? When I drive 20mph I need to keep it in 5th gear to keep the RPMs from red-lining..

Agreed with Rocketman.

I have found the Temp Sensor to be the culprit on 99% of this issue.

This is something you need to have looked at now,It could be so many things,from a vacuum leak to a bad sensor.But that is very unsafe to drive.

AC blow out hot at low rpm


when you are stoped does the car idle fine. when the rpms are low the compressor does not get the pressure up high enough. you may need to get you idel turned up a little or your vaccume advance may have a vaccume leak.
