    the engine in your Saturn is not very powerful, when u switch on the AC this takes about 5-7 horsepower away, so yes you do feel a loss of power, solution buy a more powerful car

This is pretty common for the engine to loose power when the ac is on,the ac compressor pulls down on the engine.If it is extreme,then the engine may have some problems,or the ac compressor is trying to lock up.If this was at all helpful,please rate thank you.

My air condition only blows out cold air not hot


Turn your air conditioner OFF and turn your heater ON. Air conditioners were designed to blow out one temperature of air... COLD.

My Air Conditioner started blowing hot air. Code p2181 came up. I have had problems with my fuse box over my battery. Could this be the problem again?


  • Press the "Power" button to turn off your unit and then remove the filter from the filter panel on the side or front of your air conditioner. Refer to your manual if you are unsure where the filter on your unit is located.

    Inspect the filter. If it is dirty, brush off dirt, debris and lint. If it is really dirty, wash it with mild soap and water and allow it to dry completely. Reinsert it into its compartment. If your filter is worn out or damaged, purchase a replacement filter from an appliance or hardware store and replace the old one.Turn on the air conditiner

  • Check for a reset button on your air conditioner and press it to reset your unit. Some of the newer air conditioners have reset buttons to restore the default factory settings. Press the "Power" button on the front panel of your air conditioner to power down your unit if it does not have a reset button. Unplug the unit from the electrical outlet. Leave the air conditioner off for several hours to see if it will reset.

    Plug your air conditioner back into the electrical outlet and turn it on. If your air conditioner is still displaying the E1 error code, turn it off and contact a qualified technician because the room thermistor response to detecting room tempeture is needs replacement I say I'd loose business but rather clients trust me then go elsewhere recommend me for what you'll pay get a new one if it doesn't work

    Air conditioner problem 2001 Dodge Pickup


    Hello, It sounds like your hot/cold blend door actuator is either hanging up at times or it's loosing it's calibration range because it's starting to go bad. The ticking noise is most likely the actuator trying to close off the hot air port but is unable to stay closed allowing hot air to mix with the cold. If it's just a weak blend door actuator, it will act up more when the air is on full because it has more resistance due to air flow. If possible try to see if the times it acts up decreases when you start the A/C with low fan speed.

    The power steering and power brakes are connected to an extent. They both pull their power from the same place (basically) I would check to make sure that you have enough fluid in both first. Then check to make sure you dont have air in any of the steering fluid lines.

    2001 Chev Mailbu air conditioner freezes up and fan strength lessens.


    Look under the hood and if the A/C is blowing cold and there is ice forming on any of the lines (especially the high side) there is a clog in the system somewhere.  The cheapest place to start is putting in a new expansion valve a/k/a orifice tube.  Freezing up is usually a result of a clog somewhere in the system.
