Noise When I engage my Air Conditioner

Hi,

I have a 1996 Ford Aerostar Van, standard wheelbase, with a 3.0L V6 engine with 117K miles.

My question concerns my air conditioner. When I turn on the air conditioner, especially after the vehicle has been sitting awhile, the air conditioner sometimes engages with a loud thud sound.

The air conditioner works well and doesn't make any other noises while operating. It only makes this noise when I first turn it on.

I was wondering what could be causing this and is this something I should begin to worry about.

Thanks for your help!

Mike
