Not sure how old the belts on your car are but a loose or worn belt will do exactly what you are explaining. You can inspect the belt for cracks and see if it needs adjusting or replacing.

2001 kia spectra belt use to squeak and a/c worked (most of the time ) but now the belt isnt squeaking and the a/c or heater will blow? the a/c would come on sometimes if you hit a bump or reved the engine


sounds like you may need to look at the compressor under the hood and see if the wire on it is plugged in and make sure its not cut or broken. the squeak could be due to a loose belt try tightening it if it is possible

I have a 2005 kia spectra and when i turn the ac on it is slipping real bad, what is it? I think it is the air conditioning clutch but i dont know for sure! it stops making the noise when i turn the ac off...


I had this problem, the belt was worn out and the bearings in the AC pulley are going bad. Removed the belt to the AC and the problem went away, no AC until I get the replacement.

My kia spectra was making a loud squeeling noise and it has stopped but now my Air conditioner will not blow cold air ( only blowing warm to room temp. air)...is it my fan belt?


it sounds belt related. i am not sure if this vehicle has a seperate belt for the ac compressor, but if so, it sounds possible that the compressor seized and tore the belt off. have a look

My Heater Only works on high when it does work the belt squeaks


Sounds like the blower motor is going out. and need full voltage to run. Are you might have leaves or trash in the duct work causing to motor to drag at low speeds, and making it make the noise that it is making.
