Question about 2006 Saturn ION

1 Answer

I have a 2006 saturn ion, and when my aircon is on my rpm needle goes up and doesn't matter if i'm driving or in park. When i'm in park the issue is much worse. The RPM needle keeps doing the same thing but after about 10-15min in park my RPM needle goes to 0 and shuts off the car. When the car is doing this my aircon works but doesn't cool like it's supposed to. I already had the throttle body replaced but the issue continues...please help!!!

Sounds like your AC compressor is trying to lock up. Have a shop check the head pressure on the compressor.

Passanger side door will not open i know the screws to take the door panel off are on the side but can any one tell me if i can open it another way

You can try pulling up on the lock piece located by the window several times really fast! Another wards, grab on to the lock pull it up push it down and do that 3-4 times and then try unlocking with the remote if that doesn't work, try pulling up on it again and at the same time try opening the door from the outside, people don't understand that with Saturn's the piece that holds all the lock parts in place is a thin piece of metal that can get out of place by driving over time from the bumps and jarring that your car goes through, its not difficult to **** it back into place basically! Of course there are springs in the bottoms of the doors, sometimes by chance that spring could be sprung.

How to remove door panel from Saturn Ion

Depending on what side you would like to remove, you may want a friend to ride along with you as you drive at least 84 mph down a street crowded with parked cars. Once at full speed have your friend swing the door open (this won't be easy as you are going very fast) and then you as the driver can swerve and hit a parked car (or telephone pole) with the open door. This will result in the fastest and easiest way to remove the door. Hope this helped. Good luck.
