Air conditioner makes noise which increases as you rev the engine and slows as you take foot off the gas.also, the front vents (by the windshield) also noisy when you switch to them,opposed to having the air blowing at your feet or face!

YOU SEEM TO HAVE A LOOSE OR BAD AC COMPRESSOR DRIVE BELT. WHEN YOU SWITCH THE TO THE VENTS CLOSE TO THE WINDSHIELD IT TURN THE AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH ON, IT ACTIVATES THE DEFROST. TRY POURING SOME WATER ON THE AC BELT AND SEE IF NOISE GOES AWAY. THE BELT MAY NEED ADJUSTMENT OR MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED. GOOD LUCK

Hi billberger2

When the air conditioner turns on, the car computer also increases the engines revs to counter the load of the air con. It should not generally be noticeable however. Will do some research to see why. :)

2011 acadia when taking foot off the gas pedal there is a knocking noise


The front motor mount and the upper engine strut mount both commonly fail. Start engine and have someone rev engine and let off while you look to see if either mount is moving excessively. The noise you are describing it is likely either or both the mounts.

In f150 truck there is a small vacum hose passenger side up by the windshield. It's a small hose check really good they dry rot and it will cause your vents to switch. Also if your box is bad. It's next to the battery

Turning air conditioner on makes geo slow and wastes more gas


This most likely is not a problem, if the ac blows cold air.... sorry but it is physics.

If you still think something is wrong, I would need 4 things, temp in front of radiator, temp, at center ac vent when on high, and the AC low and high pressure readings.

Long story short, or saving money....fact is the ac typically does not work if over or under filled...

The load is what it takes, and if you had tons of horsepower you would notice it less, but hey, you are cooling, so ...sounds normal to me.

Air only blows out on windshield & floor when


THERE IS A VACUUM LINE THAT GOES FROM THE LEFT FRONT OF THE ENGINE TO THE VACUUM CHECK VALVE NEAR THE ACCUMULATOR. IF THAT LINE IS BROKEN THE PROBLEM YOU HAVE IS NO HVAC MODE SWITCHING.

Acceleration no air, foot off gas air barely blows out vents


The vent is controlled by vacuum. Check the condition of the vacuum hose associated with the vent control. What is happening is when you decelerate, the intake manifold vacuum increases, and a diaphram is slightly pulled giving you air in the vent but very little. In normal condition the diaphram wont even pull. Solution is check for a vacuum leak in the vent control trace it coming from the intake manifold.
