1996 Lexus ES300 Question: Motor noise when A/C is on

My 96 ES300 runs perfect and everything works great except for this noise coming from the hood when A/C is on and the car is accelerated, meaning noise occurs only when I step on the gas pedal. This noise sounds very much like engine revving sound. The thing is A/C works fine. What could be wrong, and what kind of repair cost should I expect? -
Answer 1
Could be the engine fan. When the a/c is on the fan is engaged. -
Comment 1
What kind of cost am I looking at if I need to replace the engine fan? -
Comment 2
This car has an electric fan so I may be wrong about the noise. We would have to listen to the car to be sure. -
Comment 3
In case I need to replace the A/C compressor, and I bring the part that I buy on internet, what would you charge for replacing (labor only) the A/C compressor and clutch? -
Comment 4
$413 plus evacuate and recharge $179 -
Comment 5
Thanks. wow.. that's lot more expensive labor than the repairpal estimate.. -
Comment 6
If you want to get your own parts we increase the labor to recover the profit we make on the parts. -
Comment 7
I have to say, you seem very honest. Thanks. -
