My son's 1998 Plymouth Voyager (same as Dodge Caravan) -- with over 100K
mostly-highway miles -- makes a screeching slipping belt noise whenever the
A/C or defroster are activated. It's definitely engine related, as the noise
changes with engine speed regardless of road speed, and the serpentine belt
dies much faster than it should. The belt has been changed a couple of times
already and dealer mechanics say they can see no reason for the problem.
Any ideas on what is causing the problem and how to fix it? (My only thought
is that the belt tensioner has lost its tensioning ability...) Thanks.
check the comressor. I believe it is faulty aC compressoer. Take the
belt out and try to compressor manually, I mean inner part. or when it
is making sound check if the central part of compressor rotates.
