I hear a Big Bang noise when the a/c is on. Happens usually when taking off. Sounds like comes from passenger side. 2009 Forester. Temperature outside about 95 degrees. Fluid levels fine. 60000 miles on car.
JA: How many miles are on the car? Have you checked the coolant level?
Customer: I will Check the coolant. Only 60000 miles
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Oil is good. Recently changed. Engine sounds fine. Didn't check coolant- will need to do that. Don't hear anything unusual when idling. Notice the problem typically when a/c is on and taking off. Sometimes bang is loud and other time not so. Seems to be louder when taking off on in
