Maybe. The compressor uses an electric clutch on the front to engage. when it engages, you should see the inside of the pulley start turning. With the clutch off, the pulley turns but not the inside. If the clutch is clicking but not engaging, it will have to be repaired with special tools.

Screaming noise from ac no cold air


It sounds to me that your belt or tensioner is worn, if the noise goes away when the ac is off then it is just the belt slipping, it takes a lot of power to run the compressor and if the belt is worn it most likely slipping on the pully when you engage the clutch.

I have a 2001 Yukon XL 1500. I broke an AC belt. I had the belt replaced and the system recharged. It now makes a noise when you accelerate after start up. But that is the only time. AC blows cold...


Actually,you both could be right.It may be the bearing inside the compressor.The compressor does not make the cold air,it helps pressurize the system to get the freon from the evaporator to the condenser.The evaporator provides the cold air.If you can,open your hood and have someone start your car.Have them give it some gas and see if you can pinpoint the noise more accurately.If your compressor bearing causes it to seize up,you will probably only get a couple of miles before your belt snaps.Another slight possibility is the tensioner.It's pretty rare but stranger things have happened.I did have a compressor seizure years ago and snapped a belt though.If you can pinpoint the noise it would help to know.If you can't I would like a better description of the noise though.Good luck!

ticking can be a few problems that are not terminal first check oil if low top off and see if noise quiets down if oil good than have oil pressure checked -may be clogging or bad oil pump-check check where the ticking is coming from if its the head area than possible need to clean repair or replace a valve train part-[clogged push rod ,bad/need adjustment rocker sticking /bent valve oil return clogging /sludge] if coming from front of engine check the pulleys and water pump or fan for damage or debris a ticking noise usually is a noise that can be repaired just need to pinpoint the location

It will be like a squeaking noise and cold air want blow out


Check to see if the compressor is turning or if it locked up. The noise may be the belt slipping on the compressor.

I think the air compressor is bad in the truck


If your refrigerant level is OK and the truck blows cold air your compressor should be fine, in which case the noise is probably coming from the AC clutch which isn't too expensive or difficult to replace. If it doesn't blow cold air, switch the AC on and watch the compressor. If the clutch engages, but the compressor doesn't turn, the drive belt will squeal loudly and probably start to smoke. In that case it is the compressor which is expensive to replace. Most vehicles have an AC bypass that will temporarily cut out the compressor clutch under heavy load. If you are going uphill with the AC on or accelerating heavily you might notice warm air coming out of the vents for a short period until you let off the gas.
