When using my air conditioner, I hear a roar like sound in the motor or the engine. Is that normal? If so, it's quite embarrassing.

Could be normal if it goes away. Otherwise, it may be the compressor making noise for you.

Testimonial: "It doesn't go away until I turn of the air or turn of the jeep. Compressor sounds like the problem. Wonder if that means it's going out (the compressor) or no?"

    It could mean the compressor is worn out, yes, but they generally last a long time even if noisy. Try to shoot a can of refrigerant and oil into it to see if it quiets down for you.

Engine roaring above 30mph


Is it possible you are hearing a wheel bearing instead of the engine or exhaust ?
Normally a bearing will roar on a turn and not on a straight stretch, but I guess its possible to do it the other way. A tire will make a roaring noise too.
I can't think of anything related to the engine that would roar only on a turn except maybe the power steering.

Roaring in front when going down highway


this vehicle has thermostatic fan when engine gets hot enough under load ie, going uphill it will engage and you will hear a roarining sound which during normal driving you probably wont notice, once the engine cools down the sound will go away.

hope this helps art

Whenever I turn on my air conditioner, my car makes a roaring or rubbing noise. What is it?


Sounds like the clutch in the compressor which would usually be in the front lower portion of the engine on a pulley on the front of engine (passenger side on front wheel drive cars - and tubes are connected to it.  When engine is off spray with some lube but not on belt - allow to drip of for couple minutes.
Try that couple times and start car in between times using the air conditioning.  Not sure if you can replace the clutch unit or have to replace the compressor as a unit which would lose the Freon or R2 or whatever the new stuff is called now...
Hope that helps.

Air conditioner 2002 mercury marquis


In the engine bay, there is a set of fuses by the battery. Pop open the fuse panel. There should be a set of relays. Check in your manual under "Roadside Emergenies" for the relays and you will find one for the A/C Compressor. The compressor normally checks out fine, it is a common problem that the relay goes bad. Swap the relay with a new one and you should be golden!

I just purchaced a 2001 ford ranger 3.0 and was wondering if it is normal for the cooling fan to rev high. you can hear it roar when you start out but when it shifts gears it quiets down. i also noticed...


Is normal for older vehicles to do this. Wait until something breaks and fix it. I know it doesnt sound like great advice, but if all is working,leave it alone.

I have a 4x4 explorer and it makes a roaring sound from front end is this normal for this model to do this


This model explorer is equipped with a mechanical clutch fan. When starting the engine and when accelerating from a stop, it can tend to roar as the engine reeves up. If that is what you are hearing then yes, it is normal.

Ihave a 1992 caddy deville Ican hear the blower motor blowing .


I may have had a similar problem, for a long time my blower motor made a loud howling/roaring noise, hard to explain, but I only heard the noise when the blower was turned on. It continued to blow air for a couple years then just quit, the noise it made continued for another 6 months to a year without air-flow. Finally it quit blowing air at all. I eventually replaced the blower motor and no more noise and air flow was restored. Hopefully you already have fixed this because removing and replacing the blower motor wasn't fun.

RE: 2001 Nissan Altima air conditioner


Sounds to me like you need the alternator idler pulley. Look at it and see if it has a big washer covering portion of the pulley, or if the washer is inside the pulley. If its inside, than you have an old pulley. Replace it with the one, that has the big washer in the middle of pulley. You do have another idler for the A/C compressor. Those I have seen fail also. But 80% of the time its the alternator idler pulley.
