hi there,

im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech

this sounds like you might have a bad ac compressor.

when it first engages, it takes the engine a little more effort to first engage it, so it raises the rpm up and the belt can squeel.

see if you can unplug the ac compressor or disconnect the ac compressor relay and see if it continues.

if it stops, than the compressor is the culprit

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
