How are you going to draw the system down to a vacuum to put the new refrigerant in? If you can not answer that question, then you are going to have to pay someone to do it and seems like someone who knows what they are doing is in order here for the whole project. This is not like replacing a starter.

Air blows warm out of my a,c unit


The first thing to do is see if the AC compressor on the engine is running and if it is check to see if the larger of the two lines from the compressor is cold, if it is not cold and the compressor is not running then you have lost the charge of refridgerant due to a leak, if it is cold and AC compressor is running then the door inside the dash called the "Blend door" is stuck in the heated air position and you must replace it and the actuator that moves it.

Bypass ac compressor 2006 saturn vue


I doubt it but I would have to see it in person to say for sure.
If nothing is in the way between the pulley before and the pulley after the compressor, you could use a shorter belt. How much shorter would be something you would have to try to measure.
On the rare occasions when a vehicle comes without ac, the factory puts a dummy pulley in the place of the compressor. I think all Saturn Vue cars had ac.
You say the compressor won't turn, but you really mean the clutch on the compressor ??

I need to replace air conditioner compressor w/clutch for my 2006 saturn ion 2 sedan automatic 4 cyl-I've found new ac compressor w/clutch at different auto part shops ranging from $175-$500 and w


is it full of freon? if so it could be that you just need to change the magnetic clutch which is a lot simpler job and cheaper too. get a book first so you have referance pull the belt off pull the nut in the center of the ac compressor make shure that you know what the clearance is betwean the clutch and the compressor it has shims and is imperative that the clearance is right you will need measurment tools feeler gages work best but befor you do any of this you need to make sure there is power and ground going to the two wire conector going to the clutch it wont get power till you turn the ac on or the computer tells it to run for the interior eco system so a magnetic cluch will not turn on if there is no signal resulting in the compressor not terning making the ac not work but its fairly simple to do and 900 is a dicent price at a shop but they would probably charge you for the whole compressor and charging the system and it was only a cluch if there is freon and the compressor isnt siezed and theres signal and ground change the clutch

cheap_repair_5.jpg To save money you may want to install a bypass pulley, about $30 from rockauto.com. This will take the place of the compressor and allow you to use the same serpentine belt; but you will have no AC.

To replace the AC compressor you will need a vacuum pump ,gauges, recovery pump, and the correct refrigerant to complete the job.

here is a general idea of whats involved to replace a compressor.

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.

My belt siezed and broke off earlier there was a grinding rattle in engine for past few days and my ac hasnt worked for more than a month


grinding noise was probably a bearing in ac compressor, when it froze up completely it stopped turning causing extreme wear on the belt ..so it broke... check ac compressor out , could be bearing only ..could be whole compressor ..have it fixed...when compressor is removed the hoses have to be disconnected of course so if it still has refrigerant in it, that will need to be recovered at a shop..the ac system will have to be vacuum pumped down and recharged anyway.
