What could be causing loud grinding noise when i switch on aircon? Aircon now not working but only makes loud sound.


Sounds like the bearing or part of the clutch in the A/C compressor has failed, or possibly component on a/c fouling on something due to recent repairs however would be unlikely and probably just a coincidence..

Check A/C compressor turns by hand, should be firm but not make any noises.

Check for fouling components related to a/c compressor clutch.

Popping / Banging noise from air filter when turning sterring wheel


My guess would be the strut spring is broken. Also check the strut bearing plate and the lower ball joint.

bad motor mounts will cause some issues, bad CV joints will also cause and issue. You will need to check for both. Being a 99 you will also want to check teh front differential for the proper fluid level, this is not the same as the transmission.

Everytime you turn the steering wheel it shuts itself off; why? almost everytime that is. He's changed the steering column and it still does it. Does anyone know why and how to fix it?


the power stering pump, when turning, puts a load on the engine. the rpm must be maintained when this occurs. idle control circuits must be inspected. ensure spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor are in good shape. perform a tune up if it has not been done in a while. typically 20,000-30,000 miles. check the egr system. a partially open egr valve could cause low rpm. change the air filter if dirty. check the fuel pressure for proper psi.

Will the caster and camber adjustment bolts cause a popping noise while turning. My ball joints are fine, no play in the box hardly, new pitman and idler arm, what else would pop. I have been told the...


Popping noise when turning is usually CV joints. Is this a 4wd? One more thing to check, is your sway bar bolts, as they can break off, or wear grooves on them, and pop as they have pressure put on them. If the popping noise is something that happens once, and not a continuous thing when you're turning, most of the time it's ball joints though. Did you replace them? How did you check them? Easy way to tell, is to jack the wheel up, and if it slides out slightly when it gets ready to clear the pavement, then you're almost certain it is ball joints.

I am not sure if the wheel bearing on the front end is broke. it makes a loud poping noise when turning and the wheel is towed in


Loud popping/grinding most noticeably heard when turning is normally a sign of a bad CV joint. Look under the van where the axle half-shafts come out of the transaxle and connect to the backside of the wheel assembly. Are the rubber boots on the axles torn or missing?
If you hear the popping only in left turns, your right CV joint is bad, If you hear the popping only in right turns, your left CV joint is bad.

My car will not go in reverse but will go forward


typical FWD GM transmission issue, the transmisson will have to be rebuilt. You could try a fluid flush and filter change but there are only 2 discs pack for reverse. Which makes them fail very easily
