    Most people just replace the compressor as it comes with the pulley which is also the ac clutch. Not an easy fix for the a person without special tools and freon recovery tank. I would make sure that is what the problem appears to be. It is kind of expensive. Have you already tried the belt dressing?

Make sure all your belts are tight and in good shape. If the inside surface on the belt is shiny and not dull it has been running loose and is "polished". If this is the case replace the belt. If that is not an option for you try some belt dressing or the old standby, use bar soap and coat the inside of the belt. If this doesn't help you may have a bad pulley on the compressor itself. If the air works you either live with the noise or replace the pulley,

Click coming from timing chain x type 2.0 jaguar


if the noise is definately from the front engine timing chain cover area then the first thing i would do is remove the auxillary drive belt/fan belt then start the engine to see if noise is still there? if so the only option is to remove the front engine cover and from remember you may have to remove the cylinder heads also, even remove engine for access\,big job, the engine is normally a bullet proof unit, if the oil has been changed at service advised intervals then the hydraulic chain tensoiner etc should be ok and most noise problems at the front of engine area are caused by. ie. belt tensioner, air con compressor,pas pump etc. so if noise goes when aux belt removed look at the that area. hope this helps.

Screaming noise from ac no cold air


It sounds to me that your belt or tensioner is worn, if the noise goes away when the ac is off then it is just the belt slipping, it takes a lot of power to run the compressor and if the belt is worn it most likely slipping on the pully when you engage the clutch.

My question is related to the previous thread. However id like to reitterate the problem so that whoever stumbles upon this thread on google could help them immensely. I bought my mitsubishi montero sport...


Ian,
There are two fans in a vehicle, One is in the engine compartment and is for the radiator. The other is in the passenger compartment and it runs the heater and air conditioner air flow from the plenum. The condenser is near the radiator and the evaporator is in the plenum. Condensers don't fail. Neither do evaporators. If the squeal is coming from the engine compartment when the air conditioner is turned on, the problem is either the belt to the COMPRESSOR or the CLUTCH on the compressor.

We just replace the radiator, fan, belts, water pump and pulley in my ford f250. It runs fine w/o a/c. When I turn the a/c on it makes alot of noise and smoke comes out of the compressor unit under the...


The smoke is probably coming from the Serpentine belt. Flip the belt and see if it is now starting to be SHINY. The belt is going faster than the Compressor has the ability to turn. More than likely, the Compressor is partially seized and needs to be replaced.

ticking can be a few problems that are not terminal first check oil if low top off and see if noise quiets down if oil good than have oil pressure checked -may be clogging or bad oil pump-check check where the ticking is coming from if its the head area than possible need to clean repair or replace a valve train part-[clogged push rod ,bad/need adjustment rocker sticking /bent valve oil return clogging /sludge] if coming from front of engine check the pulleys and water pump or fan for damage or debris a ticking noise usually is a noise that can be repaired just need to pinpoint the location
