Customer Question

My name is ***** ***** I have a 2010 Kia Forte that is making a loud sound, a friend used a stethoscope and said the sound was from the compressor. The sound is always there even if the ac is off.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I can't really describe the sound.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — GM Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $32 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Ok, is it a clacking sound, screeching, rattling, whining, or knocking sound?

Did he say if it was coming from the front of the compressor, or from the inside of the compressor?
