Question about 2003 Saturn ION

AC blows hot air

The AC in my fiance's 2000 Saturn L300 stopped working last week. The dealership near her parents replaced the compresser. Two days later, the problem reoccurs and the dealership near where we live discovers that the first dealership missed a seal and all the freon leaked out and needed to be recharged. Now, less than 24 hours later, the AC starts blowing hot air again and she's considering buying a new car.
Assuming the new compresser is good and there aren't anymore bad seals, what else could be the problem?

My 2003 l200 did the same thing...ended up being a leak or hole in the ac line.
- thin metal and exposed to the elements will do that.

My air conditioning was blowing only hot air. The dealership replaced the AC compressor. It worked for one day then started again blowing only really hot air. It has not had the problem diagonosed yet...


It should have been diagonosed already if you had a compressor installed, They are to check for leaks, and should have replaced any bad o-rings,
When the system is vacuumed (a mechine applies a vac. to remove any moister in the system) it is to sit for min. 15 minutes with pump off, any if the gauge shows that vac. has changed (should be a neg pressure) then there is a leak.
I would take it back, but I would only pay for parts.
Check out this site and maybe it will enlighten you how A/C systems work. Good luck

My AC is blowing out hot air after getting my crank shaft position sensor replaced last week, that took three days to do. I had AC before I took it in, now all I have is hot air blowing in my face while...


they might have emptied the system to remove the part or broke a pipe not knowing to find out if the system is full you need to have it tested and to find out if its leaking or the belt on the ac is loose causing it to malfunction i would take it back and ask politly that it was working before and now it stopped could you see if they emptied the freeon please

I HAVE A 1995 SATURN CAR 1.9L AND THE QUESTION IS. THE AC BLOWS BUT ITS LIKE THE HEATERS ON, AND THE COMPRESSER ENGAGES BUT DOESNT BLOW COLD AIR, I CAN SWITCH THE POSITION OF WHERE I WANT THE AIR TO COME...


Most likely the freon has leaked from the system. Replacing it is a fairly simple process, but finding and repairing the leak is expensive (labor wise). Plus, in the States, federal law prohibits non-licensed personnel from working with freon and it's descendants. Find a good AC service shop and get an estimate--you may not need that AC air as much as you thought! Good luck!
