This may be a stupid question, but has the tensioner for the belt been properly tightened?  Does it squeal when it vibrates?  The tensioner for the alternator belt is on top of the alternator and is a bolt you tighten or loosen.  The tensioner for the AC belt is underneath and can accessed with the right front splash guard removed and the car placed on ramps.

AC Clutch noise and vibration


An A/C clutch will not make this concern happen, more likely the A/C compressor is begining to go out. The belt on the A/C clutch Assy. free wheels (spins feree on the pulley) when clutch is not engaged. If concern is not present with A/C off this means the bearings in the puley assy. ok. Once the A/C clutch is engaged it locks the compressor against the spinning pulley and turn the compressor chaft and spins the A/C compressor internal shaft. If you hear a loud "screach" when you turn on the A/C it means the belt slipped for a second, if it continiues to screach it means either the belt is loose or that the compressor is internaly locking up. I wouild start by checking the belt tension (if not equipted with and auto tensioner). You can also remove the belt and turn on the A/C and attempt to turn the clutch/pulley by hand, it should turn with a little effect but should not bind or lock at times if that happens compressor is bad.

When stopped in drive the steering wheel vibrates a lot when the air conditioner is on .There are already new motor mounts replaced could it be the adjustment of the idle screw ?throttle plate cleaning...


The belt tensioner can cause many of these problems, sometimes the serpentine or fan belt is replaced, but the tensioner is not given much thought, a tensioner that is going out, can cause the belt to not have enough tension to keep the battery charged by slipping, when the clutch on the ac compressor cycles on and off, if the tensioner is to loose, or not tight enough can cause the compressor to vibrate, it can cause wear on other parts attached to the belt even cause pre-mature wear on other pulleys. good luck!

I have a 1998 ford escort. when in idle there is a vibration in the steering wheel. when i turn the a c or the heat on the vibration gets really bad. do you know what the problem could be?


its the compressor for the AC (you may call it the pump) its trying to jam up and stop turn ing if this happens the blet would slip at first then it would brake the belt off,,,,,the pump it not easy to change as the AC would need to be re-charged with gas

I NOTICED THAT THE POWER STEERING FLUID SPLASHES IN THE RESERVOIR AND I HAVE ENGINE VIBRATION AT IDLE AND UP TO 3.000 R/M. HAS IT TO DO WITH P/S PRESSURE SWITCH ON THE PUMP?


Hi:
It is doubtful that the power steering pump is the cause of your vibration, but to find out for sure, remove your serpentine belt, and start up the truck and run it briefly without the belt to see if the vibration goes away. If so, you know that it is caused by a belt driven accessory..Then you can individually check the power steering pump, the alternator, and the AC compressor if you have one.

Belt tensioner vibrates severly only when a/c on


That is what it sounds like. Try to take off the belt and see how free the compressor turns.
