I have a 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 XT with 11,000 miles makes a slight rumbling or
grinding noise when the A/C is on, when the engine is idling. The noise
comes on and off periodically, as if from the compressor clutching in and
I don't hear it at speed, probably because it is drowned out by normal
The cooling seems to work fine, temperature wise.
Is this normal? If not, I'll take it in, as it is still in warrantee.
