Question about Saturn Vue

1 Answer

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 that if I had my AC off my car would idol funny. My husband changed the fuel filter and that seemed to help. Don't know if the two issues are related. My husband said the relay switch is fine and he thinks it may be the compressor or something to do with a vacuum pump. If he knew what the problem is he could fix it to save us money. Any advice you could share would be appreciated! Thank you in advance, Vanessa

    Sorry I don't think my question was clear. My AC stopped blowing cold air. No matter what temp its on its only warm air that comes out. What are somethings we should check so we can find the causes for this in a 2006 Saturn Vue?

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.

Tip

Climate control settings,on all vehicles


When using the ac on a hot summer day,or a mild spring day,the compressor runs all the time.If you set it to low,and turn the temp to cold or toward the warmer side,lets say cool,then the ac compressor runs also,it just cycles,on,and off.No matter what setting you are using on your ac control,the ac compressor stays on,using fuel.Get the most out of your ac,while it uses your fuel,to keep you comfortable.All vehicles have a MAX setting,or a recirculate setting.Always use this setting.I say,always use this setting,not only that,but use this setting.I stress this because you are pulling in air ,from the out side,that is warming the evaporator,and making the ac work harder to give you comfort.In the hot ,hot summer,the settings MAX,and recirculate,keep the air that is in the vehicle,in the vehicle.It recirculates the air,instead of bringing hot air inside the vehicle ,and bringing the temp,up,to a warmer temp.A lot of people don`t even know that this is on the control,or don`t know what it is for.Some times the recirculate button,or dial,will have a picture that looks like a C,but squared off at the corners.So folks,get more out of your vehicles cooling and heat system.Yes ,this will work on heat also,maybe not defrost,but on some cars,it will work.

My Saturn Vue 2.2 (2006) car could not start one day and i got it jumpstarted. the engine then started going off when I am using it with the AC on.


Sounds like the alternator is not putting out the correct charge...this will cause the engine to stall, and may not be keeping the battery fully charged. You can have the alternator tested at many auto parts stores for free, including Auto Zone...replacing the battery will not solve your problem. Hope this helps.

2003 SATURN VUE SERIVE ENGINE SOON LIGHT IS BLINKING ON AND OFF RAN THE OBDII READER AND CODE P0304 CYLINDER MISFIRE CAME UP I CHANGE SPARK PLUGS AND BOOTS BUT CAR STILL DRIVES ROUGH SHAKES AND WHEN PARKED...


The P0304 indicates the #4 cylinder is misfiring. The flashing light means the cylinder is not firing at all...It could be several things causeing it, coil, wires, plug, injector or vacuum leak. Do not drive your vehicle until you have this repaired, as it will lead to further more costly problems. Good luck, i hope this helps.

WHAT IS THE COST OF A BATTERY FOR 4 CYLINDER SATURN VUE 2006


Expect $80 and if you hunt around it may be less. Compare Orielly, Autozone and Walmart as
they all have price match offers. Buy it from who you like at that point.

How to preform a tune-up on my 2009 Saturn Vue


It has a maintenance recomendation from the manufacturer for replacement of the spark-plugs at 100,000 miles. You don't list mileage or V6 or L4 cylinder. Make sure engine is cold because the cylinder heads are aluminum and can be damaged if plugs are removed hot or overtightened upon reassembly. Remove spark-plug wires and replace spark-plugs. Sometimes the wires break when you remove them and will require replacement. If you coat the inside of the wires where they connect with the plugs with dielectric grease it will help prevent the wires from breaking upon future disassembly.
