I just replaced the belt on my A/C Compressor and now the engine stalls when the A/C is on. I though it might have been too tight but when I loosened it, it started to screech and didn't stop the stalling problem. Help please

Hello,

The most likely cause is the A/C Compressor is locked up.

If you have someone that can assist have them start vehicle with a/c off while you are looking at the compressor have them turn the a/c on. Does the Pulley freeze up? If so then your a/c compressor needs to be replaced.

Pulley spins and A/C runs for a bit

Does the Compressor make any noise before it stalls out?

Sounds like the bearings inside the compressor are going. And since the vehicle runs fine when a/c is off the compressor is at fault.
