SOURCE: there is a low pitched growling noise coming from

Are you sure the noise is coming from the compressor and not the belt tensioner or other accessories, when you turn the ac on it put more of a load on the engine. If not since the compressor was changed twice was it properly oiled and the clutch turned manually to insure proper lubrication. I am hoping if it is the compressor that the reciever dryer and expansion valve was changed and the ac system was flushed well, to insure no contamination, or blockage damaging the new compressor.

You didn't mention the alternator, power steering pump, or water pump. In fact, any pulley other than the crankshaft one can have a bad bearing or dry seal. Remove the belt and spin each pulley while listening for any rough noise or squeal. If it was the crankshaft, it might be time to check the oil. Start the engine with the belt off to see if it does squeal. Make sure the noise isn't coming from the radiator fan(s).

SOURCE: questions about ac pulley and belt?

the defrosters run with the ac compressor running whenever its 49 degrees and higher. it does that to get rid of humidity faster. the pulley works off the ac clutch behind the pulley so you have a locked up clutch. find a belt to fit by bypassing the ac compressor will do if you like

Buy a whole new clutch for about $200. You need a special puller to remove the old one if you intend to refurbish it. It's not worth the effort. Just remove the clips and knock the old one off with a hammer. Chuck it away and replace with a brand new clutch assembly.

2001 chevy venture what size is belt that bypasses a.c. compressor the exact measurements


There is no belt to bypass the AC cataloged, when the AC is not ordered on the car (AC delete) or the compressor is removed for some reason then you must use what is called an AC delete pulley, it bolts in place of the AC compressor and you use the same belt. The pulley is cheap and either the dealer or most good auto parts stores like NAPA (or others) can order it for you, in the aftermarket the pulley's are made by a company called DORMAN

What drive belt do I use on my 05 vx sv6 if I remove the aircon unit


if the pulley on the ac is still good ( bearing ok) then pull the ac fuse for the compressor and use the standard belt
the pulley for the compressor just becomes an idler
the other way is to use a tape measure around all the pulleys and idlers and the measurement will be a starting point for the length of the belt
go to a service dealer spares, and see if there is a listing for a belt for a vehicle that doesn't have ac

If you have a separate belt driving the ac compressor then leave the belt of. IF it has to go around the ac pulley then disconnect the power lead at the pulley clutch and again no problems as the ac pullet becomes an idler.

A belt broke on my car and my ac dont work....what do i need or how much would it cost to repair?


im not sure of the year,make or model of this car but if everything else is working like the powersteering and alternator and car doesnt overheat then i would say that the belt may only run the ac compressor. the first thing to check is all pulleys, the belt may have broke due to being worn and old, the belt may have also broke due to a bad pulley or a frozen one. check all pulleys in which the belt runs on. spin each pulley by hand and make sure it spins freely, if all spins free then install a new belt , make sure to check the ac compressor also. good day.

I ust had the water pump replaced. Now my ac has gone out. I know nothing about cars but I do know that I hear a strange noise and the front part of the ac unit was turning and now it's not. It seems...


It is unlikely that the replacement of the water pump and AC failing are related, however ensure that the V belt is correctly positioned and under tension. The AC pulley should be spinning continuously by the V belt. The AC compressor is engaged by an electrically operated clutch within/behind the pulley wheel. If the pulley wheel is not spinning but the belt is sliding over it then you have a seized AC compressor and this will most probably need replacing. If the wheel is spinning but the AC compressor is not working (no cooling) then it is the clutch that is not engaging. This could be due to a worn clutch, failed clutch actuator, broken electrical connection, failed relay, broken fuse a failed interior thermostat (the car thinks that the 'set' temperature has been reached and so switches the AC off). To check, put the AC on the lowest setting and test the voltage at the AC compressor connection. If voltage is being supplied it is likely to be a failed AC clutch. There are lots of AC clutch repair videos on youtube and these should be a great help.

Does the 2003 kia sedonas ac compressor have the pulley attacted or can it be purchased separately?


The pulley which is called the clutch asm is sperate and can be removed and replaced without the compressor being replaced but i have found that just about ever car or truck that i try to replace the clutch instead of the whole compressor i found the clutch alone will cost as much if not more than the complete unit, i have also found that the most common reason for a compressor clutch or pulley going bad is due to the compressor itself being bad. good day,

No. The bearing on the compressor can be replaced without buying an entire compressor.

My AC compressor went out on my 2004 Chevy Blazer. Since winter is here, I just want to bypass the ac. I bought a belt for the same yr/make without ac. Where can I find a serpentine belt routing diagram to...


its the same. but a different pulley takes place of the a/c compressor. I know DORMAN makes a few "bypass pulleys" to do this, but dont know if they make one for your truck. at the worst... you will need to get a pulley and bracket from the dealer for a truck without a/c . as long as your a/c pulley bearing is ok, you can let the belt run there.

Ac stopped working , smelled smoke, shut car off and on then ac worked fine but hearing odd roaring noise every now and then


Sounds like the AC compressor is going bad. Have the compressor tested and I'm sure the belt is what you were smelling. make sure nothing is touching the AC belt. If the compressor stops working properly the belt will burn. Solution= replace compressor and belt.
