If more than normal (AC does take a lot of power from the engine), then the compressor is siezed or siezing - or the bearings on the pulley are shot (though you'd hear that too)

Saturn cuts off when trying to use the a/c


It could be more than one problem.
The cooling fan could be running because the temp sensor is sending the wrong signal to the computer.
The ac compressor or clutch could be bad causing a heavy load on the belt and the engine.
I would unplug the compressor clutch and see if the engine still bogs down with the ac engaged.

My 98' Saturn Sl1 air conditioning does not work. Before I got my motor fixed it worked but now that I replaced it with a used new motor it wont blow out cold air. The Heater works prefect but the Ac...


If you didn't take the air compressor off the old engine then you probably have a bad compressor on the new motor. If you did then you may not have installed it or wired it correctly.

With the car in idle, turn the AC on and off and watch the rpms, they should fluctuate slightly when you turn it on and off, if they don't change at all then the compressor probably isn't wired to the controls.

The reason for the fluctuating RPM is that when the compressor kicks on it creates a load on the engine, which causes the rpms to temporarily dip down, the engine will then feed more gas to recover the original RPM.

AC not working in 98 Saturn SL2


Did it gradually get warmer over the years or just recently. If it just happened then you could have a leak in the system or a compressor that died. Pressure test the system and verify that the compressor is working. You may get lucky and just need a recharge but more than likely you have a leak somewhere in the system.

98 Saturn SL AC/cooling fan will NOT work


Do not let this car over heat a blown head gasket will ensue. Locate and replace the fan relay, if that doesn't fix the problem unplug fan and use jumper wires to ground the plug then feed power to the positive side of plug to check fan, if that doesn't work replace the coolant temperature sensor located somewhere near the intake manifold or thermostat housing area.
