Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
alright firstly lets approach that noise concern. Is the noise happening only when the compressor clutch engages?
If you can watch the front of the compressor while someone cycles the ac on and off to identify if it is when the clutch ( the front of the ac pulley ) engages then we know you will need a compressor replaced. Double check that and let me know. If it does go that way you will probably want to also replace the receiver dryer and txv/orifice tube.
What did you find?
No worries. Don't work too hard just let me know when you can.
