Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David. I believe you have separate issues with the not starting until cool and the coolant level issue. Is the check engine light on?
broken belt. do you see a belt around all of the pulleys?
thats a v6 3.0 correct?
ok, try to reach down and grab the belt. it should be routing around all the pulleys, if its broken it will pull right off or be very loose
no they dont. i am wondering if the tensioner crapped out on you. can you turn all of the pulleys by hand, except the crankshaft?
so there should be 6 pulleys. which one isnt turning by hand?
ok. you need to get a new compressor unfortunately the pulley froze on you. get a new serpentine belt also. if that belt is that loose, it should easily turn by hand
so the belt wasnt driving the alternator pulley hence the battery light and it wasnt turning the waterpump pulley hence the overheating
let me know if i can be of anymore help....
i hear ya. the good ole days
Have you replaced the compressor?
