Sounds like something with bad bearings. Check in the area of air conditioner compressor or power steering and yes water pump.even the belt tightener will do that.

There is a noice when i run the ac in my 2003 lexus es300, i was told it may be the ac clutch is there such a thing? If not what could it be. Thanks

there is a magnetic clutch located on the front of a/c compressor it spins on a bearing that could be bad if the clutch itself is causing noise from poor engagement then there generally is a underlying problem if air gap on clutch to large causing poor engagement then bearing is usually bad to much shaft end play and so on this could be the signs of compressor going bad low oil in compressors tend to cause noises but when compressors get noisey they have to be replaced not repaired can get expensive fast

Pop the hood, start the vehicle and turn the AC on. Watch the compressor, it should have a center that rotates on an off and you should hear a clicking sound. This is the compressor clutch you are looking at. If the compressor is not doing this, check the fuses for the AC. If the fuses are good, then most likely the high side sensor switch is not working, therefore the clutch never engages and the air never gets cold.

Try that and get back to me, ok?

Can I bypass the AC compressor by buying a serpentine belt for a 1999 Dakota 3.9 w/o AC? The compressor is noisy(bearing?) and the system already had a leak.

the one without ac has an ac delete pulley that sits where the ac pump would go, so the answer is no, buy the pulley.

1996 dodge dakota A/C Problems

It could cause the A/C problem but not the heater problem. You can determine if the compressor is bad with a set of A/C manifold gauges. If you don't have access to these, you can do a quick check on the compressor. Do this by feeling the two lines going to it when it is running, One line should be hot to the touch and the other should be cold. Both problems could be caused for a temp actuator or temp door problem.

Ac clutch going out on 93 dodge dakota

If the clutch is noisy from a bad bearing then don't drive far,if the compressor clutch pulley bearing seizes up it will freeze the pulley and the belt will burn off, and you are stuck, if you mean the anything else besides this drive it.
