I have a 2002 Durango. The AC gets cool, however when I turn it on it makes a loud clickety sound that is heard outside the vehicle. It also makes this sound when the heater is turned on as well.

Look under the hood and find your AC compressor. It is usually right on top. Start your truck and put the AC on at the coldest setting. Go outside and see if the clutch is turning on then off then on then off and so on. It could just be a low charge and the low pressure switch is turning the clutch off.

New, loud noise - what is it, what to do?

How long has it been running since taking it back out of storage? I have heard that noise from many a AC unit and its usually the refrigerant moving around on the first startup, but usually goes away. The other things i could think of is if its really humid it could be condensation build up thats getting splashed by the outside fan, not the blower that moves the room air through it but the fan that blows the hot air out the back side on the outside. If it has a condensation drain that allows the water to drip out the bottom on the outside make sure its not plugged up, and also make sure the AC has a bit of a downward angle to it, so that the outside end is slightly lower to allow condensation to flow to the outside. If none of that solves it you could have developed a leak and lost some refrigerant and what your hearing is the compressor sucking at the refrigerant, think of a water pump with an occasional air bubble in the line, or when you turn on the garden hose and it has to purge the air out before you get a solid stream of water. But i would check the easy things first because most window units now days are throw away, can't repair or recharge them.

NOTE: If you do not have specific information about this 2002 Durango "common problem" and the correct "fix" for it, please do not respond with "suggestions" on how to fix it. I have PLENTY of those...


I have come across this problem in the past with other large vehicles and the quickest most simplest solution was to replace the condenser.

Reason for this is because this is where the refrigerant is turned to a liquid form from a gas form which is from the pump and carries the heat through the condenser which cools it down to supply the cool air you get in the cab.

If possible get a larger item, you will have to get the refrigerant topped up but you won't have the problem you have been having.

Hope this helps,let me know if you need more help.

My kia spectra was making a loud squeeling noise and it has stopped but now my Air conditioner will not blow cold air ( only blowing warm to room temp. air) it my fan belt?

it sounds belt related. i am not sure if this vehicle has a seperate belt for the ac compressor, but if so, it sounds possible that the compressor seized and tore the belt off. have a look

If the fan is running backwards, you should be able to fell the "breeze" from the outside of the vehicle, near the radiator. Also, If you spray the outside of the radiator with some water, if the fan is running backwards, the water will be spraying out when the engine is running.

02 Durango: loud engine/exhaust sound. Also Recently noticed the cooling fan running more than normal; had someone check the antifreeze/ was empty....had them put in a 50/50mix of coolant and...

That noise is probably the air injection system which is part of the emmision system. When it is making that noise, open the hood and determine where it is coming from, note if it is a mechanical sound, etc. The air injection if equiped would sound almost like forced air scaping somewhat like an exhaust leak, but less intense.

Ac compressor does not turn on when car has been sitting & it's hot outside. Works fine in the morning.

either the freon charge is about 1/3 low, or the expansion valve needs to be replaced. Freon is getting into the evaporator, but not in great enough volume to cool the air unless it is coming in cool to start with. check your ac charge, and if it is full, then have it emptied, change out the expansion valve, and recharge it
