2000 Ford Ranger 2.5L 5-Speed 185k
At idle, When A/C is turned on a constant clicking noise comes from somewhere near where the tranny meets the engine (1 click/second). When the clutch pedal is depressed it goes away. Release the clutch pedal and it comes back on. When the A/C is turned off, the noise goes away. It's more prevelant after the truck is fully warmed up/driving for 10+ mins, and especially after I've had the A/C on for 10+ minutes.
I've just had the Clutch and slave cylinder/throwout bearing replaced, the flywheel resurfaced, and the tranny rebuilt. I assumed it was installation error after the noise persisted, so they installed another rebuilt tranny.
The noise is still present. The transmission shop says it must be something other than the clutch/tranny yet it seems thats where the noise is definitely coming from.
Is there something wrong in my A/C system? Is it due to installation error? I should also note that my serpentine belt is noisy until the engine has warmed up if that has anything to do with it
have the same problem?
