2000 Chevy Tahoe a/c noises
I have a 2000 Tahoe that makes a noise while accelerating with the air conditioning on. The noise sounds like the cooling fan striking the plastic shroud surrounding the fan. The noise persists until I let off the gas. If I accelerate slowly, there is no noise. I did have some wooble in the cooling fan and replaced the water pump and cooling fan clutch assembly. However the noise continues. I have also replaced my tension pulley for the serpentine belt. Could this be my a/c compressor going bad, as I still get ice cold air. HELP

You might want to check the motor mounts to make sure that they aren't letting the motor move to much under a load. I usually open the hood, hold my foot on the brake, put it in gear, and give it a little gas. Let off the gas, go to reverse, and give it a little gas. You can usually peek under the hood and watch how much the motor moves. Excessive movement usually means a worn or broken mount.

Please let us know what you find.
