It could make a noise if the clutch on the compressor is really bad. Could it be he drive belt that is making noise? With the engine running when you hear the noise spray a little water on the fan belt and see if the noise goes away. Kia as a car manufacturer put a lot of great technical information and work shop manuals on line for free for Kia owners. www.kiatechinfo.com
