Question about 2003 Chevrolet Impala
I have a 2003, chevrolet impala and when I turn on the a/c button, I notice a squeaking noise that stops as soon as I turn the a/c button off. What is this? Someone suggested the A/C fans, somoeone else the compressor, someone else engine cooling fans and someone else a/c compressor clutch. Are these all the same thing, or all different things?
No, they are not all the same things, but they are all good suggestions. I am going to vote for the A/C clutch/compressor as my main candidate. The compressor is driven by the serpentine belt that drives all of the accesories on your motor. The A/C compressor only asks the engine for power when the A/C is on. When the A/C is off the pulley in front of the compressor is otherwise just spinning freely with no drag to the engine. When you turn the A/C on, it kicks in the electric clutch on your compressor, therefore making the sqeaking noise. It should also happen when you turn on the defrost. The squeaking noise is probably a bad clutch(not probable) or a bad compressor. Most of the time you can't buy the clutch seperate and will have to buy a new compressor. It's time to take it to the shop. Get a few quotes and take it to the Mechanic that you like the best. Also PLEASE rate my answer.If you didn't like my answer tell me, if you did tell me.
