Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
It seems to me that when I turn the air on, their is a noise that I hear in front left tire. It does not start right a way. After a while I begins to start; the best way to describe the noise. Is it makes the noise that a cell phone makes, when it interfers with the radio.l Also noticed when I hit a bump in the road, that the noise seems to get louder adn not go away. The noise is so frustrating, if I am at a light I turn the car off and then turn it back on. The noise seems to go away, not sure what it is. If it has something to do with the air condition or something wuth the tire..shock, strut??? It's a 2004 Ford Taurus SES
You mentioned the noise was from the left (drivers side) front. The compressor is on the passenger side in association with the engine compartment. Question, once the noise starts does it continue while stopped or only while moving?

you will need sockets and a socket wrench, a screwdriver, jacks and jack stands, and a set of combination wrenches.

The exhaust system on this vehicle has to be able to flex or it would crack at one of the joints, so it has hangers with rubber bushings to hold it into place and still be able to flex with the engine. Now grant it one of these bushings may have come loose or one of the hangers may have broke but I would be concerned about the thumping of the exhaust against the floor board. This could be caused by a broken motor mount letting the engine flex to much. I would suggest having someone inspect these.

CV joints yes look at the rubber boots for damage. You can get a replacement boot but if you do remove all the old grease to remove any dirt that is cousing your problem.
