I HAVE 95 SATURN SL2. I RECENTLY RECHARGE THE A/C BUT IT DOESN'T STAY COOL JUST BLOWS HOT AIR. I"VE NEVER HAD THE A/C RECHARGED SINCE I BOUGHT THE CAR NEW.CcOULD IT BE THE COMPRESSOR?


You have a leak somewhere, possibly at the compressor or a pinhole in the condenser. An a/c leak detection kit can be bought relatively inexpensively at your local parts store, allowing you to inject dye into the system in the same process you would charge the system; an ultraviolet light (included in the kit) is used to see where the dye is leaking and pinpoint the leak for a proper repair.

I took my van to get checked for leaks but one of my hoeses was torn they replaced it and put new freon but the freon didnt last that long what could be the problem


Your system will need to be dye tested. If the hose that was replaced was properly installed and not leaking, next place I'd look is near the front of the compressor. Front seals on these units fail frequently. Dye test is best way to find leak.
