    Default A/C making weird noise

    I have a 01 suburban, in fact just got it 2 days ago with 91000 miles on it.
    The A/C just started making a metl grinding noise and engine has a vibration problem also when A/C is turned on when the A/C is off everything is great. And it is only under acceleration that this happens. the A/C is my big problem it still works but the metal noise is killing me i guess i should just take it back to the dealer i bought it from, i just wanted to have an idea of what it could be thanks for any help

    Sounds more like the AC clutch, if it is making noise only when the AC is on.

    I like old school checks. Low tech rules sometimes.

    Just have a helper turn the AC on while you have the hood open, the take a long screwdriver, socket extention, anything solid about 2 ft long.

    Place one end against the side of the compressor and the other end against your head, just behind and under your ear. It will work like a dr. stethascope.

    If it's not any loader there try putting it against something else.
