Question about Saturn SL2

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Saturn SL2. The air conditioner only blows warm/hot air. I don't know if this is related, but the car also has a leak around the radiator. It constantly needs to be filled with water/coolant about 1-2 times a week. The radiator was replaced last year.

No, these problems are not related. The radiator is a sealed system and you may have a leaking hose, bad water pump or the radiator may have developed another hole in it.

The A.C problem is one of three things.

1. The A/C Freon has run out of the lines. This is a fluid used to maintain cold temperatures and produce the cold that actually comes out from your vents. It could be as easy as recharging the A/C system.

2. It could be the high pressure line that feeds the freon to the system. This would require replacing the hose and recharging the system.

3. It could be the A/C Compressor is bad and need to be replaced and the system recharged.

Each of these are progressively more expensive and should be fairly easily diagnosed, albeit by a automotive professional. I would not suggest you try to fix this yourself.

You need to fix the coolant leak, then refill and bleed cooling system, then you will get heat and cure overheating problem too

I have a 2001 saturn sl2. No heat. I have flushed heater core today and replaced thermostat. Heater lines are warm. No other problems or leaks. What is causing no heat? Its cold all the time.


If after running the engine for 5 min both heater hoses are hot, it could be a blend door problem where air is not flowing thru the heater core. You may need a shop manual to troubleshoot the control.

2006 Silverado went from blowing cold to hot. I think it might be the compressor but I don't want to spend 300 bucks if I don't have to any ideas???????


If your air conditioner needs recharging it is because the refrigerant chemical is leaking out of the system. Many people think that air conditioners naturally leak refrigerant, so they assume they have to take the car in every year for recharging. This is not true. The refrigerant is not supposed to leak. If the refrigerant is low, find and repair the leak. There should be no reason for a recharge.

1995 saturn sl2 heater blows but doesn't get hot


Could be several things. First, when car is fully warmed up, open hood and feel your two heater hoses coming out of firewall. Make sure your heater control is on hot, both hoses should feel hot. If only one is hot, your heater core inside heater case is either restricting flow (clogged) or an air pocket is restricting flow in your coolant(need to "burp" system-get all the air out of your cooling system) . If heater core is good, and circulating good, then you may have a temp. control door that is inoperative under dash, and not allowing air to move over your heater core. Good luck.

Problem with heating and air conditioning. The driver's side is blowing hot air and the passenger side is blowing cold air


Air Conditioner blows warm air
  1. Air conditioner system is discharged. Have the system evacuated, charged and leak tested by an MVAC certified technician, utilizing approved recovery/recycling equipment. Repair as necessary.
  2. Air conditioner compressor clutch not engaging. Check compressor clutch wiring, electrical connections and compressor clutch, and repair or replace as necessary.

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.

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.
