Does the compressor come on when the AC is selected?

Does the AC get cold?

It was cold when it worked. I can't even run my defrost with out squcky belt and I weird sound. And the other night I turned it on just to see what would happen and it was like my car died. Like my power steering went out or like th car totally shut off.

I see, thanks.

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating. Thanks.

It sounds like the AC compressor is locking up. When the defrost is selected the AC compressor comes on and with it locking up the belt will squeal and the engine will have trouble turning, most times shutting the engine off at lower RPM's or at idle.

Okay I got another question for ya. When I start my car it makes this loud clicking sounds and then you can hear it like wind down. But I can turn it on normal right after that. Is it a bad starter? Because I just put a brand new one on there and a while after that is when it started acting up
Chevy Mechanic: Super Mechanic, Master technician replied 1 year ago

Normally we get paid for the original answer(s) before any follow ups, but that is not related to the original post and we are not allowed to answer questions in other areas, sorry. Thanks
