Ford Ranger 1997, 76000, 2WD 3.0L V6. After startup and a few minutes running a squeaking starts coming from the engine compartment. When I hit the gas the sound increases to a high pitched squeal and then drops as the RPMs drop. At the low end it is a repetative sqeak like a bird call but at the high end its really loud and consistant. I open the hood to try to locate the source but I can't tell. My father thinks it might be the AC compresser clutch but I want to make sure before I fork out money for it. What else should I look at and how can I actually narrow down the source of the noise?
have the same problem?
