My 95 Saturn SL1 has been a real trooper these years. This is the first hvac problem I’ve had.
A couple weeks ago it felt like the ac was starting to go, and by last week it had gone. I figured it probably had a slow leak and just needed a recharge. So I bought a kit from the auto parts shop - for $30, it was worth a try!
The pressure in the system reads full - even a tad high, without putting any gas in!
I double checked everything. Compressor clutch engaged, and the gauge was attached properly.
Inside, I can hear the familiar ‘foop’ when I switch from “hot” to “cold,” which I’m guessing is the air blend door, and the air is noticeably hotter on “hot” mode - so I assume the blend motor is ok.
Any ideas on what might be going on here, or where a well-aimed kick might have an effect?
