2003 Chevrolet Tahoe Q&A
2003 Chevrolet Tahoe Question: air conditioner noise
When I first cut on the air conditioner in my car, it makes a very load grinding noise. I have had the compressor replaced twice before. Is that the problem and if it is, why do you suppose that it keeps going bad? - Visitor
