Another hot one today...
I noticed in my Ford 5.4 v8 1998 van, when my AC is in the process of workin (like in the time between when it clicks on and clicks off), if I'm driving at certain speeds (most speeds, really) somethin down in there under the hood makes kindof a sad, whiny, stressed out, constipated noise and I can even feel a little vibration in the gas pedal... and you can sorta feel the vehicle slow down a tad like it working harder on sumthin. It don't sound great but its not really gettin no worser. It don't make the noise when just idling and the AC generally works good.
But I got a awful feelin there is somethin going bad in that there AC thang that the drive belt goes acrosst.
If whatever is making that noise finally paid the price and went to heyl, would it be dangerous, or would the AC just stop workin and the wheels keep on turnin good?
