I turned my A/C on and it makes a hisssing noise when i press the gas pedal down. So weird b/c it's on and off for the for the first 5 mins

Is my compressor leaking or something?

Re: A/C noise when foot on gas

belt too tight, belt too loose, compressor could be failing.

could be any one of those 3.

pretty sure that the whole assembly in line with that belt speeds up under load, it's normal to hear a small amount of noise, but compressor noise is usually one of the 3 things I listed above.

Re: A/C noise when foot on gas

^ people that remove their a/c are dumb (unless they have a turbo or live in very cold weather or it's a show car)

My buddy took off his a/c and ps for looks on his dd and he regrets it really bad



Just check your belt like ogs said and hope it isn't your compressor

Re: A/C noise when foot on gas

^ it's just my opinion...


If u ride around in the summer with no A/C just because it looks cool is not that smart IMO.. Just uninstall it when you wanna take pics or meets and then reinstall it

How can u not want an a/c in the summer?

I hardly use my a/c, but in the summer when you are sitting in traffic it is a lifesaver instead of cooking like a chicken in your car lol. Another main use it to defog the windows, can't figure out how to defog them without a/c.
