Question about 2008 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Problem with 2008 Ford explorer. Rough, grinding sound & vibrations upon acceleration

Rough grinding sounds with associated vibrations occur intermitantly when accelerating. Notice more during lower RPM probable due to softer road noise but does occur during higher RPM. Vibration/sound resolved when not accelerating or maintaining speed.

Chevy Aveo grinding noise from accelerator when A/C is on


It will be the ac compressor clutch that slipping when after it has been activated/engaged. This happens when the engine is winding up the compressor clutch is not engaging strong enough and start slipping. However as the engine rpm stabilize on the ac compressor has caught up (same rpm) no slipping occur and no noise. Was the clutch mechanism replaced with the compressor replacement?
