Hi, I have a number of problems that I have questions about. I
appreciate any possible help and/or suggestions. I have a 94 reg cab,
4x4 p/u, w/ a brand new 22re w/ 4000 miles, a lce efi pro cam-shaft,
lce header, 2.25" exhaust through hi-flow cat, muffler. Also, a k&n
filter charger. A new Luk clutch was also installed at the same time
as the engine.
1) I haven't used the a/c in about a year (I live in Colorado). I
started using it and it worked okay, except for the fact that it
wouldn't blow cool air when the truck was idling. Then, when I would
turn on the a/c switch, while the car is running, it would make a loud
squeling sound. The pulley coming out of the compressor (I think)
doesn't turn, the belt squels and smells like it's burning. My guess
is that the compressor is shot. Any ideas?
2) At about 48-52 mph, a whistling sound is noticably audilbe. I
think this only happens on acceleration. I checked the k&n filter
connections, the cb whip, and the connections on the exhaust -
nothing. Any ideas?
3) This one is difficult to explain - thought i'd throw it out
anyway. On occasion, when driving in 1st to 4th gear, I will hear a
somewhat loud rattle/vibration. I can't isolate it, as it only
happens when driving and only for 3-5 seconds. Again, I checked the
exhaust and header for leaks and secure bolts - nothing. This was
happening before the new engine was installed. I know this is a vague
description, my main worry is that it may be something in the
driveline (u-joint, cv, driveshaft, etc) or the transmission.
Thanks for any possible help.
