Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have a 2001 Chevy Caviler. Recently, when I start the car, it makes a loud screech right at startup. I've tried taking it to a mechanic, but the problem comes and goes, so they were unable to reproduce the noise when it was in the shop. Also, if I start the air conditioner while the car is running in park, the engine will shut off. If I am driving, the engine bogs down heavily so much that I am forced to turn off the air-conditioner. What could be causing this?

The anti coolant is what is added to your radiator so that the water does not freeze when the temp goes down and damage your pump. hence do not confuse this with the air conditioner. When you put on the a/c the load noise could be the engagement of the solenoid coupling your a/c compressor to the engine. If you notice within the bonnet for the gas filling inlet there must be signs of cooling. if not check over the condenser filter on the glass window for any signs of gas or gas pressure , smoky means low gas but a good pressure of gas indicates good visiblity. If not there has been a gas leak and your whole a/c system needs a check right from the compressor to the condenser to the cooling coils inside the dash. The leak has to identified by a pressure check with air filled, check for blocks before the gas can be filled. The compressor pump pressure must be checked or must be overhauled, replacement of the O rings, and reset. I hope you got an idea to proceed and hope I could help. Good day.
