Check the belt for cracks, if belt look ok adjust it, some times the belt will come out of adjustment. After you have adjusted the belt if it still makes that squealing noise the a/c compressor could be locking up and will have to be replace.

2004 Chrysler Voyager, had an acrid burning smell and a lot of smoke when heater is turned on, also a rattling/squealing noise, all stops when heater turned off?


you more than likely have a sciezed air con compressor. most modern cars have climate control which uses air con even when demisting and when engaged the electric clutch tries to engage but the pump itself will not turn, clutch will get red hot and burn your belts

My air conditioner compresser froze up so my belt broke... i got a new belt put on with out the air conditioner pulley bu tnot it makes a squealing noise... How do i fix the noise problem?


First try to see when the belt is off if any pulley has a slight drag to it.But its possible that the belt might not have enough tension.

Air conditioner


The squeeling is the belt because the air compresor is likely seizing. At idle it can't turn the compressor, in motionthe compressor probably turns and cools the air. Most air conditioners come on when the defroster is on.

A loud noise when I turn on the AC and shift it to D or R.


What kind of noise? If it's like a squeal it is a lose belt. If it's more like a clunk it's the transmission shifting and you just happen to notice it more because of the higher RPM the motor is at with the AC on. Try getting the vehicle moving with out the AC on then turning it on after you are moving to see if you get the same sound. If it's a squeal you have a loose belt that needs replacement or tightening.

Squealing noise when a/c is turned on, then noise stops. Is this an a/c fan belt or something else? Would like to know what to expect when I go to auto mechanic.


Sounds like you might have a loose are worn fan belt. Specially if this is a V belt. With the hood up have someone turn the air conditioner on and watched the compressor clutch if it stops turning you might have a bad compressor. If it keeps turning in the squealing just goes away, you might just have a loose belt. Good luck.

Help! Air conditioner causes squeal soon after turned on


The ac is belt driven, If one of the belts are loose it will make a squealing noise. Turning on the air puts more strain on the belts. If this is the case all you would have to do is tighten the belt or belts. This would probably take a service tech just a few minutes. Probably under $100.00 dollars..........

Squealing noise


check all pulleys. and also, check the air conditioner compressor. it may need to be serviced. the compressor can make a squealing noise at times if the bearings are bad. make sure the tension is correct as well.
