TSB No: TSB9834001 Replacement: NHTSA ID: 1521 , May 01, 1998
Summary: procedures for repairing abnormal noises from the rear suspension.
This problem can be caused by dried out suspension bushings. These bushings are little rubber pieces that go around the ends of the your suspension parts like your sway bar and control arms. A quick rememdy to test would be to jack up the back of the car, and spray all the bushings liberally with silicone spray. Once the spray works its way into the rubber, the rattling/creaking noise should go away. The other possible problem could be worn shocks or coil springs Good Luck To You

Well, the first thing that you should check into for this is whether your a/c pulley is free spinning. If you take the belt off of it, you should be able to spin it fairly easily. If it doesn't, then you may have a clutch problem and may need to replace the pump. If it looks good, then look into when you last had the thermostat replaced, if ever. This is a cheap part to replace, though a pain sometimes. It controls the coolant for when the engine gets too warm, it lets more in and it may be getting stuck and not opening like it used to.
Other things to check would be fluid levels on everything, oil, transmission fluid, and coolant especially.
Let me know what you find.
