Q: AC Compressor Squeal - When 2nd Alternator On or A/C On

asked by on

I'm getting some random squealing when i turn the A/C on or i engage the 2nd Alternator. Especially when either are on and i excellerate.

  1. Is this a compressor exchange or clutch?
  2. Do i need to replace the condenser or can i flush this year?

Any detailed info or professional knowledge and wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
