Asked by Jun 11, 2015 at 01:14 PM about the 2001 Saturn L-Series 4 Dr L100 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If I start my Saturn and let it just idle, it over heats and the air condition blows but its not 'cold' air. If im driving down the highway, giving the car gas the car does not over heat and the air seems to work fine. If I stop in traffic or at a red light/stop sign the temperature gage begins to rise slowly and the air condition stops blowing 'cold' air.

1 Answer

Check the electric cooling fans by the radiator. One should come on when the AC is turned on, the other is therostatically controlled.
