I have a 2002 Ford Taurus, 6 cylinder, 51000 miles. When I turn on the air conditioner I intermittently hear a clicking sound. The clicking stops when I shut the a/c off.
When the a/c is also on, the car jerks when idling - for example while at a red light. This does not happen often. The jerking was bad for a while, then stopped for a long time. Now it started up again.
One mechanic said that the clicking sound was a belt that needed to be tightened (I did not have that done yet - I don't think that is the problem otherwise wouldn't the clicking be heard all the time, even when the a/c is off?)
I think the problem is with the a/c -- as all problems are evident only while the a/c is on. Any ideas?
have the same problem?
