Yes it can. this may mean the death of the compressor is inevitable, has been filled with the wrong refrigerant/lubricant, or it is low on refrigerant. you have to determine what type of refrigerant is needed, (usually R12 or R134) and use the correct lubricant, if the refrigerant does not have the lubricant already in it. every time a compressor is filled with refrigerant, it also needs th be filled with lubricant, and most, but not all, commercial refrigerants include lubricant. if there is a leak in your system, you can use soapy water in a spray bottle to find the leaky hose/connection.

Chirping noise when accelerating


If it is a belt noise, sprinkling baby powder on the belt will make the noise go away. Apply liberaly with engine off onto the belt and start the vehicle. The belt may have gotten coolant on it and this will cause the chirp. Also a defective belt tensioner will cause the belt to chirp

PT Criuser has been running hot and now makes a loud chirping sound when cranked up . What causes this ?


my guess is your water pump is not working properly and the loud chirping sound is from the serpentine belt which also runs the water pump, alternator, ac and steering pump. first thing to check is coolant the cooling fan , thermostat , water pump in this order. chirping sound definitely come from the belt but the cause could come from any of the driven part but im zeroing in on the water pump because the car is running hot. old belt could also cause the chirping.

Why is my 2001 Yukon making a chirping noise


I would check the freon level, because that would be the cheapest fix. If it's not the freon, it could be the AC compressor. If the compressor is locked up, it could make a screeching noise. As far as your brakes, I'd use some brake cleaner. Most likely (unless you've driven it tens of thousands of miles already) they are just dirty. Dust collects quickly on brakes. Hope this helps!

Chirping sound


Start with the AC , when the sound starts, turn off the AC and see if it goes away. If that works, you have a problem with the AC compressor pulley. Check the other pulleys by taking the belt out and turning the pulleys one by one and seeing if it makes noise. Let me know how it goes.

My 1998 sebring 6cyl makes a metal on metal noise on the side of my engine by the belts i tried greaseing all the pullys and i used belt noise sparay but it becomes lower and then it becomes higher ???...


sounds to me from the brief description like you have either a water pump rattling, or a timing chain coming slack. Is the noise coming from the alternator? Never grease pulleys, ever. also the stop squeak spray is bad for your belts. Don't know why they even sell it. If you listen carefully you may be able to pin point the rattle. Is this a tick tick tick, or a rattle rattle rattle? Does sound like a water pump rattle or timing chain slap though. Hope this helps

I'm tryin to find out if my a/c compressor is out. So I know that the dealer said that I need it charged and I didn't get it done. So lately it has been makin a loud noise and rattlin on the...


You may be having AC problems but that is not what happened when the Steering locked unless the AC is on the same belt as the Power steering unit. That whining you are hearing when you turn is actually the power steering unit being low on fluid or the power steering pump going out. Based on what you have described my guess is that the unit has gone out and needs to be replaced. As far as the AC compressor is concerned, if the unit is low on Freon it will not engage once it gets too low unless the clutch goes out. When you look at the center of the AC compressor when the engine is running and the AC is off you should see the pulley free spinning and the very center of the pulley won't be spinning, that is the clutch Dis-engaged. When you turn the AC on the Clutch should engage and allow the compressor to work. You will hear it kick in and kick out repeatedly if it is low on Freon. If it is too low it will never kick in because the low pressure switch won't allow it.

1999 ford expedition make noise when idle but stop when pickup speed. make a chirping sound when idle .i check pulleys & belt (ok) disconnect belt but still make chirping sound


Might be your water pump. Check for drips of antifreeze
Usually the bottom of the pump has a weep hole and the 1st sign besides the noise is antifreeze dripping from the weep hole

It makes a chirping noise all the time


Chipping can be caused from a bad bearing that needs to be replaced or lubricated. It could be inside the alternator. power steering pump, idler pulley, Whater pump, AC compressor, and so on.
Use a long handle such as a broom stick and place the stick to each item that is belt driven. Place it at a secure place such as the housing so the stick does not get near the belt. As the engine is running place your ear at the other end of the stick. This works as a Stethoscope same as a doctor uses. The chirpping will be hear the loudest at one of the belt drive accessories during your testing
