Question about 2006 Saturn Vue

Open Question

2006 4 cylinder Saturn Vue AC cools only while driving, why?

AC blows cold air only when driving, not when in idle, in park or at a stop light or sign. The complete AC system has been replaced about a month ago. Had been working great until yesterday.

SOURCE: 2001 Saturn L200 heat only blows high. A/c out.

Sounds like a possible broken/ripped/disconnected air line (hose) to the compartment.

SOURCE: 2004 SATURN VUE HAS PROBLEM BLOWING COLD AIR WHEN

did you check if the cooling fans are working? this is very important, because they lower the pressure of the freon before passing throughout the expansion valve and getting into the evaporator,more pressure means highter temperature, , of course when you are driving the air flow throughout out the condenser lowering the freon temperature in the condenser and lowering the freon pressure at the high side, tha's way the temperature inside the car is lower ... you can have a similar problem if the condenser is partially plugged..hope this was very helpful...

How do you check an orifice? Oh the high pressure side it will be warm to hot to the touch. The cold low pressure side will be much colder 45-50 degrees. if there is little difference and the charge is good the orifice could be plugged.

Hi! I have a 2006 Saturn Vue 4 cylinder with 91,000 miles. I always keep my AC on max. The other day I turned the temp warmer. Well the next morning the AC stopped blowing cold air. I noticed before...


The car will idle funny due to the air-conditioner on ,when on it takes power from the motor about 10-20hp depennding,and with the air on all the time its robbing you of fuel mileage.put the temp back to cold and use norm-air max should be used to get real cold and then switch to norm.if you want warm air,then put on vent and stop wasting fuel,with a.c on when you have it on the red area.

Same Problem, warm air at low RPM's 2006 Saturn Vue


I agree with philip, i have not studied the electrical system. but to my best guess the electric fans are tied into the engine cooling system. when the engine is not requesting the fans to come on. then their is very little air passing threw the cooling package. When their is no cool air passing by the condenser this will not draw the heat out of the refrigerant leaving excess heat in the system and when the cab fan blows this is were the excess heat is getting dumped. then at higher speeds their is enough air passing threw the condenser and radiator to cool them both.
