When I turn on the ac compressor my engine pulls and makes a knocking and a high pitched noise. The cooling and heat work fine but when on, it takes the power from the engine. Higher rpms and has a more difficult time picking up speed. I can hear the engine pull. If I turn off the ac the car runs fine. Is it the compressor or the engine or even vacuum leaks?

Compressor has failed. Leave it off till you have it repaired.
