A/C squeals when turned on?

Postby 96B-Mike » Wed Apr 30, 2014 8:36 pm

Before i changed my alternator (couple of weeks ago) my A/C would squeal (loud as f**k) but i could play around with the dial and it would eventually turn on and blow cold. Then when i changed my alternator the A/C was blowing perfect, no squeal, cold and good as new....then i guess i jinx it some how and now its squealing every time i turn it on and it wont go away?

BTW: change A/C compressor and dryer roughly 2-3months ago.

I read online that it could be possibly over-charged? Im trying to sell this car soon, and i need it working ASAP.


Thanks

Bad pulley or belt is too large or just too tight.
