Default Re: whine/groan from new AC Compressor

There was diminished cooling the day it first made this noise. When it's not making the noise, the cooling is fine. The thing about leaks and noise that confuses me is that I've had three leaks before. High pressure line, then condenser and then later, the old compressor. I never had any noise like this while using the system with those leaks.

So, I'm hoping it isn't another issue with leaking. I'm hoping when it's hot out, he'll be able to drive it, hear the noise and know what to check. I just hope it's a warranty issue.

I know when I brought the car to this man for the leaking radiator (job done by a dealer), he told me that he was the supplier of the radiator and if the dealer wouldn't fix it, he'd do it for me for free. So, he seems like an honest guy.
