Question about 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

Engine rattle The vehicle seems to run fine until you turn on the AC and put the vehicle in gear, then it has a rattle in the engine compartment. The noise goes away when you raise the RPMs. Mechanic has changed the belt tensioner and compressor, but the problem still exists. Any ideas??

Does it only do it with the a/c on or does it do it with it off and in gear. If it does it with the air off and in gear the the problem is possibly in the tranny. If it only does it with the air on the possibly another pully in a bind causing the rattle possibly water pump.

What would cause an audible vibration under hood when car is running at low speed with ac on? Turn ac off, no rattle. No warning lights come on.


Could be just about anything.
The engine is under extra load when the ac is running. So any small vibration is amplified with the ac on.
My first guess would be a weak motor mount if the vehicle is several years old.

If the compressor is failing, or there is a restriction in the ac system, the compressor could put a heavy load on the belt and the engine.
