My A/C is acting up

After starting the car I turned on the A/C and I heard a loud squealing noise. I turned it back on and continued to hear the squealing on every possible setting.

At times the power would drop greatly and the can would "jump". Once after turning the A/C off the noise continued for a short time and the car continued to jump until I put the transmission into neutral.

Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds like either the compressor is locked up or the belt tensioner is bad and cannot keep sufficient tension on the belt.
