Question about 1998 Nissan Frontier

1998 Nissan Frontier AC system

When I turn off my AC system or when it cycles, I hear a noise that sounds like a bad bearing slowing down. My mechanic says when the system is turned off the AC clutch turns backward. Is there a check valve in the high pressure line that could not be closed?

    I hear a noise that sounds like metal to metal as the truck is moving when the air cuts on and off...also, sometimes it seems worse when I am coming to a stop or slowing down...Not sure if this is the AC or something else ...the mechanics that I have taken it to cant seem to find my problem....Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Go to the parts store and buy (for about $10) a mechanics stethescope.  It will have a metal piece you can carefully (MAKE SURE YOU DON"T PUT IN THE PATH OF A MOVING BELT OR FAN) put on the top of the A/C compressor, other end in your ears, and with a helper turning the A/C on and OFF,  you should be able to determine if the sound is coming from the A/C compressor clutch.  If so, replace the compress clutch or compressor.  Form the limited info I have, it sounds like the clutch is bad or on the way out.
If the A/C works (blows cooler than the ambient air), it's unlikely there is any problem with valves in high or low pressure side being in wrong position (especially if no one has been monkeying with them ;~) )

Squeel when clutch is out


more likely if the clutch is out and its squeals, more likely it will be throw out bearing which engage and dis engage on the pressure plate. the bearing is constantly spinning along with the pressure plate and the pad itself. any good mechanics can tell you what and were the squeal sound coming from by listening to it and sound and not cost you anything.

Car AC stopped blowing cold, compressor turns on, Freon at 45


you are going to have to put tracer dye in the system and check for leaks
if no leaks then might be low on freon and or there is a resistance in one of the lines

2003 Nissan Altima, Air condition makes loud noise when the unit is turn on. It slows down where u cant almost hear it after you turn the fan off.


When you put your A/C on, there is Vacum Motor or Solonoide, that increases RPM of the Engine to compensate the load of an A/C. If the vacum hose is leaking or raptured the RPM of Engine remain low and Engine Shakes. When you put the A/C on and the RPM of Engine Increases, but a little, then your Selonoide is working but not adjusted properly, so adjust it for the proper RPM of the Engine. Put all the loads on, I mean Head Lights and A/C on and then ajust the RPM.

Scraping sound at very low speed (5MPH)


I have personally seen a lot of wheel bearings go bad on these vehicles. If you hear the noise get more pronounced when turning left, the right front (passenger side) bearing is most likely the culprit- if turning right, it would be the left front (driver side) bearing.

Hope this is helpful!!
