Sounds like the a/c compressor or clutch is worn.My guess would be the clutch,this part mounts on the pulley of the compressor.

Ac makes whining noise on a 2004 Pontiac grand prix


Is the whining noise coming from the engine compartment where the compressor is located or is the noise coming from inside the car? If the noise if coming from inside the car it could be your blower. When a blower wears down the bushing is the first thing to wear down and it begins to have play. That makes the blower/fan vibrate making a loud whining noise. Replacing the blower could solve that whining noise.
If the noise if coming from the AC compressor, it also could be a bad bearing within the compressor.

The compressor runs when ac or defrost is selected.

Whining noise when AC or heat is on coming from engine compartmen


I suspect it is the blower fan and the ductwork for the air intake to the blower picks up the air in front of the engine compartment.

It would also be a good idea to have your alternator checked and use the A/C heat controls to see how much the blower motor is demanding from the alternator. Autozone and Oreillys will check the alternator on the car for free.

Metallic, vibrating noise coming from engine compartment


I've actually had two different occasions (on different GM vehicles) which would produce this type of noise. On a 1990 Buick LeSabre it was loose bolts connecting the flex plate to the torque convertor ( sounds most like your problem). On a 1989 Pontiac Bonneville (actually 2 different ones) it was a bad harmonic balance pulley. The Buick only cost me the time to remove the dust cover from the bottom of the bell housing and tighten the bolts. The Pontiac's cost me $100+ for a new pulley and the time to replace them. Both require a bit of mechanical experience, but I did them and I'm just a simple farmer.

96 Ranger, "Popping" coming from engine compartment


Possibly you have a leaky or cracked exhaust manifold. After the engine heats the metal expands and creates a larger gap. As the engine speeds up the engine noise overcomes the exhaust leak noise and you don't really notice it much until the vehicle gets in to a hard pull or comes to and idle.

Noisy rattle in engine compartment of 2003 Impala on cold start.


Take a broom handle(with the broom removed) or long heavy dowel rod , start the engine when cold and place one end of handle to your ear and the other to different parts non-moving parts of the engine compartment,including the engine to narrow down  the location of the noise.
