10:38 -- the O-ring on the compressor is called a slim line seal washer.
You only use suction side slim line seal washers as a replacement.
Additionally, there is a separate part number if you're attempting this
repair on a 1999-2002 S-series... this is it: 21031289
11:10 -- Obviously you would want to re-attach your air intake tubing, air
resonator, and air box/filter before taking off...
To clear some misinformation: some home A/C units in fact DON'T use
R-134a... the newest one I bought uses R-410a... however the fridge DOES
* 1/4" drive ratchet
* vice grips
* 10mm sockets (regular and deep well)
* 3" extension
* R-12 mineral oil (for lubing the new O-ring on the thermal expansion
valve side; FJC part #2468 works well for this)
* rolled napkins/rags to plug the holes where the hose fits onto until you
get the new hose prepped and screwed in
***Mechanic's Safety/Troubleshooting tips when working on the A/C system***
1. A good majority (about 98-99%) of A/C malfunctions/gremlins are related
to a leak or multiple leaks in the system. Unlike your home A/C unit,
refridgerator, etc an automotive A/C system is always put to the hard test,
every day. Conditions include but are not limited to: collision damage,
vibrations, road noise, underhood temperatures that constantly change like
Owe-Higho weather, etc. Over the years these and other conditions cause
your parts to wear out, which means the proper parts will have to be
replaced in order to restore your A/C functionality.
2. Always have a professional technician service/diagnose your A/C system.
The techs have the know-how, tools, and machines to properly
diagnose/service your A/C system, including but not limited to: System
evacuation, vacuum holding, pressure testing, leak detection, and if
everything's good to go, a recharge.
HOWEVER, you can save some diagnostic time by looking for evidence of
leaks. Usually, traces of UV dye and/or refridgerant oil will be left where
the leak(s) happened. Start at the compressor, then the condenser, hoses,
lines, receiver/dryer, thermal expansion valve, oriface tubes, etc.
3. ALWAYS work on a discharged system. Refridgerant is cold to the touch
and can cause personal injury. If you're dumb enough to put it in your face
(or someone else's), you can put an eye out.
4. Work on a cold engine (think ambient air temperature). I'm sure you
don't wanna get burned working in tight places, etc.
5. If you're working on multiple A/C parts, repair each part one at a time.
Due to the way A/C flows and the design of parts, etc. this'll save
confusion and tail chasing later on. Mixing parts and hoses can cause
costly repairs later, if not an improperly working A/C system.
Remember, Safety, Proper troubleshooting, Proper diagnosis, and doing the
job right the first time are all #1.
2001 Saturn SC 5spd Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 2001 Saturn SC 5 spd. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Removing/Cleaning the ignition coils/module on a Saturn S-series.
Shows you how to remove and clean your ignition module/coils on the above
mentioned vehicle. Especially helpful if you're getting missfire codes
(P0300-P0304) or camshaft codes (P0340/P0340).

00-02 Saturn S-Series headliner removal
In this video I show you how the headliner board is removed from a 2002
Saturn SL2. This is part of the process to either replace the fabric on the
board or to work on the sunroof.
I unfortunately did not record the replacement of the fabric because I
butchered the install but there are many videos out there that will show
you how. The Sunroof is a project come spring.
Disclaimer: I am not a licensed mechanic and the knowledge I have is purely
from research into different problems I have been trying to resolve. As
this is a major procedure for this vehicle, I will not be responsible for
any damage or other mishaps that might occur should you decide to pursue
the repair after viewing this video. This video is intended to be for

Who races a saturn 4 door car?
My 1997 saturn SL1 converted. I took out the sohc and put in a dohc,
header, 2 & 1/2" Exhaust with Dynomax muffler. High voltage
MSD coils, 8.8 wires. It had a bored throttle body and true cold air
intake. I installed an egr block off plate and I used fuel injectors from a
Pontiac grand am gt. The transmission is the original 5 speed from the sohc
setup which has lower gearing. The car was dropped a little by cutting the
strut springs. The wheels are 16" aluminum. The guages were changed as well
with the motor swap as can be seen at 4:57 in the vid, so the readings are
accurate. Note how it pulls from 60 to 90mph. Pretty decent for a naturally
aspirated 4 cylinder.
My 1995 Saturn SL1 rolling over 250,000 miles. (1 of 2)
I have never done a THING to the engine except oil changes and spark plugs.
100% original motor. Original radiator/cooling hoses/hi-beam bulbs/AC
system - still blows ice cold! I get over 40 MPG to each tank, and I tow
ATV's with it... it's been a great car!! I'll post again when she rolls
over 300,000!!! :)
