How do I adjust alternator belt?


Check to see if there is a tensioner pully that adjust the belt tightness. The tension pulley a small pulley will have two bolts on it one of them loosens and tightens the belt around the alternator and compressor USUALLY.

AC Clutch noise and vibration


An A/C clutch will not make this concern happen, more likely the A/C compressor is begining to go out. The belt on the A/C clutch Assy. free wheels (spins feree on the pulley) when clutch is not engaged. If concern is not present with A/C off this means the bearings in the puley assy. ok. Once the A/C clutch is engaged it locks the compressor against the spinning pulley and turn the compressor chaft and spins the A/C compressor internal shaft. If you hear a loud "screach" when you turn on the A/C it means the belt slipped for a second, if it continiues to screach it means either the belt is loose or that the compressor is internaly locking up. I wouild start by checking the belt tension (if not equipted with and auto tensioner). You can also remove the belt and turn on the A/C and attempt to turn the clutch/pulley by hand, it should turn with a little effect but should not bind or lock at times if that happens compressor is bad.

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.

I have a 1990 240 DL volvo and there is a loud screeching noise when I turn the A.C. on and turn corners. If I turn the A.C. off the noice stops. What is it, and how do I fix it?


Your drive belt tension may be set too loose or the belt itself is going bad. If you have a spring loaded tensioner, that may have weakened as well. Bottom line is that when belt is not tight enough, the normal load from the compressor added to the extra load on the pump when turning causes the belt to slip (making noise) Eventually, it may begin making noise when started as the alternator demands more power in order to work (you likely have heard cars with this problem in parking lots...loud screech right after starting) Wish I remembered which method they use to restore tension on yours butyou can easily get that info in any inexpensive manual (they may even allow you just to browse it without buying)


Good Luck!!!

2003 Tahoe (5.3). AC belt/tensioner/compressor (Chatters)


The compressor is bad. I have the same problem. Apparently none of the tahoe's compressors are worth a ****! im having to replace mine too. You have to change the compressor, the accumulator/dryer, orifice tube and flush the lines. If you look on ebay you can buy a complete kit to change it all for about 300 bucks. The dealership tells me that you need to change the fan clutch as well. They told me that the reason for the noises is the fan clutch isnt working properly and it lets the compressor get too hot causeing higher pressures in the compressor due to the heat. They called it liquid slugging I believe. Mine doesnt break the belt but when you give it very much gas it makes a squeal and then a grinding noise like your trying to put a standard transmission in gear with it running without pushing in the clutch. I asked if you could just change the fan clutch and they told me no its too late, you have to change the compressor and dryer/orifice tube.

Screeching noise, then a/c stops blowing cold air. Still blows air, just not cold air.


it could be the air conditioning clutch going out. to check turn your car on and idle it with ac on and hood open. at the ac compressor it will have a pulley on it with a clutch that engages when the air conditioning is on. if it engages and disengages it can be the clutch itself has gone bad, the ac clutch will also disengage if there is not enough freon in the ac system, will also engage and disengage if the pressure gets too high in the ac system. Depending on the year of the vehicle it will disengage at full throttle and come back on when you are not at full throttle.
If it is a metallic sounding screech for example take a coke can and drag it across pavement kind of sound it could be a bad compressor or a bad ac clutch. If it is a more rubbery sound for example a car spinning its tires kind of noise it could be a loose belt.

1. Check to make sure all belts are tight under hood
2. start car and look at ac compressor to make sure compressor pulley is turning and that the fan clutch is engaged spinning
