#1 of 211 2003 vue a/c compressor cycling
Jul 03, 2009 (3:43 pm)
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.

ya well im bringing it to saturn of watertown here in ct. i think its a transmission promlem. i explained to them that the ac when on slows the car down but also when put in drive it takes about 8 seconds for yhe car to go in gear then it bucks. there is 93,800 miles on it and they are going to start with a transmission service then go from there.
#8 of 211 Saturn Vue AC Compressor
May 07, 2011 (5:35 pm)
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!

#10 of 211 a/c compressor clutch blown off
Jun 03, 2011 (6:09 am)
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?
