Question about 2003 Saturn VUE

Open Question

2003 Saturn vue a/c Issues: Compressor receiver/dehydrator and txv replaced. System passed both positive and negative pressure tests. Properly evacuated and charged with correct ammount of refrigerant. Hot/cold air dampner verified to be on cold setting. Problem: Air that comes out of ducting is not very cold. Removed blower fan and had hand hand on evaporator and it was ice cold. Why is not cold air coming out of vent ducting?

SOURCE: a/c problems

This happened to me before a couple of times and it turned out that my husband sat in the passenger seat with his long legs and kicked the rod out of the hole that turns the vent from heat to ac. If you look up under the dash on the passenger side, you will see a gold rod that controls what I would call the damper. If that has come out of the hole that turns the damper from heat to ac, judt put it back in the hole where it belongs and it should start working again. I wish I could ecxplain it clearer. If when you are up under there looking and turn the switch from heat to ac and vice cersa, you should see the rod move, but you won't see it change the damper position.

SOURCE: location of the evaporative cannister solenoid? 2003 saturn vue

Depends if the engine is 3.0 or a 2.2?
3.0 purge is on the top, back side of the intake. Black, cylinder. Looks the same on a 2.2, but is located next to the air filter.

SOURCE: 04 Saturn Vue AC blows cool air for about one minute then hot air

Above solution is correct, had the same problem with mine and it was the expansion valve.

Wht is a TXV


Simply it's a valve in a refrigeration system that controls or meters how much coolant is allowed into the evaporator.
A thermal expansion valve (often abbreviated as TEV, TXV, or TX valve) is a component in refrigeration and air conditioning systems that controls the amount of refrigerant flow into the evaporator thereby controlling the superheating at the outlet of the evaporator. Thermal expansion valves are often referred to generically as "metering devices".
A thermal expansion valve is a key element to a heat pump; the cycle that makes air conditioning, or air cooling, possible. A basic refrigeration cycle consists of four major elements, a compressor, a condenser, a metering device and an evaporator. As a refrigerant passes through a circuit containing these four elements, air conditioning occurs. The cycle starts when refrigerant enters the compressor in a low pressure, low temperature, gaseous form. The refrigerant is compressed by the compressor to a high pressure-and-temperature gaseous state. The high pressure-and-temperature gas then enters the condenser. The condenser precipitates the high pressure-and-temperature gas to a high pressure liquid by transferring heat to a lower temperature medium, usually ambient air. The high pressure liquid then enters the expansion valve where the TX valve allows a portion of the refrigerant to enter the evaporator. In order for the higher temperature fluid to cool, the flow must be limited into the evaporator to keep the pressure low and allow expansion back into the gas phase. The TXV has sensing bulbs connected to the suction line of the refrigerant piping. The sensing bulbs give temperature readings to the TXV to adjust flow of refrigerant.[2]

Low side pressure was tested and was in alert. I drained some out until it read optimal. A/C blows hot, but fans and compressor are running.


This job requires special tools and special training. If you lack either, you risk SERIOUS personal injury. Injury comes VERY EASILY!

You need to address oil levels, proper and legal refrigerant recovery, system evacuation, and recharge.

You were planning to also replace the receiver/dryer, correct? It also needs the oil in it measured and incorporated into the amount of oil (in %) that would need to be added. FAILURE to address these and other issues will guarantee premature system failure and likely compressor damage.

Take this job to a qualified shop.

Sorry
