Question about 1990 Dodge Dakota
When I turn on the AC, a low grinding noise starts, but if I have the fan going only, there is no noise. As soon as I turn off the AC, the noise starts. What could be the cause and how do I fix it? What do I need to fix and what are the steps to do it.
Sounds like the A/C pump is making the noise. Possibly the clutch in it is going out. There really is nothing you can do except confirm that the noise is coming from it. It will be in the engine compartment with a pulley run by the drive belt. The reason you can't do anymore is because the pump and a/c is under pressure and the freon is not healthy for you to breathe and it would be dangerous for you to do anything. You need a mechanic to discharge the a/c and replace the pump if infact the noise is coming from the pump. Let me know how this turns out.
