Question about 2001 Chevrolet Suburban
Ac makes loud chatter on acceleration been through 3 belt tensioners
a/c blows cold does not make noise at idle it is an 01 suburban
it is not leaking any freon
Hi, there is a published technical service bulletin about this problem for these vehicles and the tahoes. the compressor sitting so low in the system, gets over-run by the liquid freon banging internally and actually locks up on and off during operation. this is the noise you are hearing. apparently there is a screen kit to install in the low side suction line to prevent this from happening, but GM also states the compressor needs to be replaced and the new compressors from GM at least, already have this modification done. So, i replace them when they come into my bay with the complaint you speak of, and the tensioner for the belt, likely the belt too. but it looks like you already know all about that. hope i could help.
