Re: Outlook / Traverse / Acadia / Enclave A/C problems

Six piston GM compressors were standard from years ago. As a rule, they're as reliable or more so because they were standard on r12 systems and rugged. They became less used as different compressor...

Re: 2002 Saturn SL-2 Air Conditioning Not Working

Best guess is pouring oll into the output side that connects to the line going to the firewall connections to the hvac box. This will ensure oil will go towards the evaporator coils and eventually...

Re: 2002 Saturn SL-2 Air Conditioning Not Working

Re: Home brew '07 2.2 turbo kit?

Perhaps a wiser move starting with a factory supercharged engine (2.0L) and refreshing it to restore any lost power. Ion 2.2L/140hp, Ion Redline 2.0L/205 hp.
