You need to check the AC pump and see if it is frozen up.

    Is the compressor turning off and on very rapidly? Or is it running and just very noisey?

  • Zach Acker May 06, 2014

    You are very low on charge, find the leak and repair it and replace the compressor and the receiver drier and flush the system, evacuate it of any trapped air with a AC suction pump and refill to correct level.

    Make sure to add the correct amount of AC compressor oil before installing the new compressor, they come with no oil in them, add at least one ounce for the drier as well.

    ok it is the compressor, i charged it and still same loud zzzzzzzzzzzzz keeps going when i turn it on. $235.00 for the part.

    Sorry, did you check this website for the part? www.rockauto.com

    Remember you must check the system for debris, it will be a black sludge. Also replace the dryer or you risk ruining the new compressor. I show a much lower price at Rockauto site, they are fast and all their parts are good quality, have used them for 12 years on dozens of cars, that includes 3 rebuilt AC compressors.

Toyota tacoma makes sqeeky noise loud when engineis cold and not so loud when hot


Most likely first check your fan belt or power steering belt. Its probably stretched and needs replacing. If this is not the case you might need to have a mechanic look at it

A/C compressor noise


It could be the compressor or maybe the clutch has gone bad. to pinpoint the noise take off belt that goes to the compressor and then run the car and see if the noise is gone. If it is then you need to look at the compressor. If you have a gage you can check if there is any Freon left in the system. If it is before you replace the compressor you will need to take to shop to have it removed it is unlawful to let the Freon into the air.
