Saturn VUE AC and Heat Problems

bcliffbcliff Posts: 1
The ac compressor on my 2003 vue cycles rather quickly after operating for several minutes. The ac blows cold inside and stays cold. When I first turn on the ac, the ac compressor stays running while the vue cools down but after several minutes of operating the ac compressor begins to cycle a few seconds on and a few seconds off. Seems to me it is cycle too frequently? Any advice would be appreciated.

  • I have a 2003 Saturn Vue 2WD 3.0 V6 and the compressor pulley bearing is bad. Where can I get just the bearing or get a clutch assembly under $325. Does anyone know the KOYO Bearing # for this bearing.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    i have a 2006 saturn vue and the air conditioning stopped working a few months ago. I took it into the mechanic to get it looked at, and he said that the compressor was leaking. I was also told that in order to get it fixed it would cost 400-750 dollars after installation costs. I am looking into doing it myself, but have never changed one on an inverted motor before. does anyone have any guidance for doing so? I plan on getting the part from a local place, but just need ideas as to change it. any/all info will be appreciated!

    I have a 2007 Vue Hybrid. I just returned from the local dealer's service dept where I was told (and shown) that the pressure had built up in the a/c compressor motor enough to blow the clutch plate off the motor. He showed me 3 other compressors that they have collected this year that have shown the same failure. Does anyone know if there is a bulletin or recall on this yet? Has anyone heard of this happening at other service centers? The cost of the repair is very high since I'm off warranty, but based on the explanation I was given this doesn't happen in non-hybrid Vues that they've seen.

    Also, is this (the compressor motor) something I can replace myself, given the right tools?

    Thanks!

    My AC was never really great; but it worked until last summer. Now it will come on every few days/weeks and run for a few seconds or minutes. The only thing constant is that if I turn it off it does stay off.
    I can jump power to the compressor and it will always work.

    I have a 2008 Saturn Vue 4cyl the air worked yestrday morning but in the evening would not turn on. I have auto Temperature Control but it will not come on even at 65 degrees. If I push the AC Button on it flashes and then the light goes off. Is this a fuse maybe???

    Hello, I have a 2008 Vue V6 3.0 liter. I’m having trouble with my AC working correctly. When I turn it on it blows cold for about 15 minutes then it starts blowing hot air. If I turn it off completly and wait about 30 minutes it will blow cold again for 15 minutes then start blowing hot air again. I thought I may just need a recharge, but that didn’t seem to help. I read somewhere that it may be a fuse. Can you help me or give me some direction. I’m in Texas and it’s hot right now. Please help.

    2008vuev6,
    My best advice is to take it to your local dealer of choice at least for diagnosis. Please keep me updated on your concerns and progress at the dealer. I look forward to your response. Have a great holiday weekend!

    Hi,
    I am directing this question to any customer service rep from GM. We had the AC clutch fixed on our 2007 Saturn Vue hybrid back just before the factory warranty expired. Well the same exact problem happened again yesterday. Is this still under warranty if it is the same problem? The clutch hub bolt loosened and the clutch hub came flying off when I was driving down the road. I reclaimed the hub from the street and went home and popped my hood. The old clutch hub was sitting in the frame of the car right nest to the compressor(for two years)!!!

    Any reply would be helpful. We are going to the dealership after this weekend and woudl like to know our options.

    Thanks!

    I have a Saturn VUE 2003, V6. 80 % of the time, the AC will trigger the temperature gauge to go high (not a real reading) and will then stop blowing cold air. So far the cooling fan resister and water pump have been change without resolving the issue. The dealer is struggling to find the problem and in the process, costing me money. Any ideas as to what the problem may be? :sick:

    our 2005 vue has an ac/electrical (?) problem. Last week the radio went off then on --then the lights on the dash lit up and the car stopped running. Turned the radio and ac off and was able to start it again. The reverse lights haven't worked for 3 years.--not burnt out bulb or fuse. Afraid to turn the ac on but even though it hasn't been cooling the car well it was better than nothing. Where to start troubleshooting?

    Our daughter was driving the 2003 Vue home at Christmas and the odometer began randomly spinning and advancing. There were around 125000 actual miles but the odometer was showing around 390000 before the trip was done. Now it is maxed out at 999999 and to make matters worse...the gas gauge quit working properly. It might indicate full and then 1/4 tank then jump to 1/2. No reliable indications for 6 months now. And the transmission is being jerky now. Too many unexplainable and annoying problems. Where to start in figuring out what the real problem is?
