If the belt is worn or not the right size it will surely be slipping.

Screaming noise from ac no cold air


It sounds to me that your belt or tensioner is worn, if the noise goes away when the ac is off then it is just the belt slipping, it takes a lot of power to run the compressor and if the belt is worn it most likely slipping on the pully when you engage the clutch.

Ac fan works but does not get cold


Hi there,
Check the air con drive belt is still OK.
Check to see if there is a slight change in the engine sound when the air con is switched on and off while idling - I'd get someone to do the switching while I listened under the hood.
If there's no change in sound (assuming whatever had to be switched on to enable air con to go, eg fan was operating) I'd check the fuse(s) for the air con.

If the fuse is ok, and you've already charged up the freon (not quite sure what you were saying there), I'd be taking it to an air con specialist.

Squealing,I have new belts and alternator.


Squealing is associated with belt slippage. 1) ensure that the belt is tight - at the longest distance between two pulleys it should be possible to twist the belt by about 90 degrees only. 2) with the engine running check funder the hood or the free running of the pulleys. a) Ask a colleague to engage the power steering from lock to lock and see if the power steering pump pulley does not cause slippage. b) set the air con to low and watch what happens when the compressor pump solenoid engages. If the belt begins to slip on the air con compressor pulley it is likely that the compressor is beginning to fail by seizing up. In that event preserve the belt simply switch the air con off and pray for cooler weather until the compressor can be overhauled.

The AC system is making an purge noise not sure if when the compressor kicks on the belt slips or what because it only does it while driving not at idle. In the cab windows up sounds like purge widows down...


If it is a purge noise the highside pressure may be getting to high and relieving pressure.Usually this can occur if there is too much freon or a restriction in the ac system.The defroster utilzes the ac as well which is why you can hear this. From your description it sounds as if the compressor clutch bearing is going bad.

I have a loud engine noise--somewhat high pitch whine--except really loud and only after so many rpms. The noise happens when I am running my air conditioner. Ten to 15 miles after I first noticed the...


So when you turn off the air con the noise stops ..
If yes then its the bearings in the Air Con pump which is driven by the same belt and when turning the r13 coolant around the bearings being dry and worn out will start to make the noise Same as the water pump does when it goes, but yours is Air Con Pump.
