When I turn the steering wheel to the right or break, my car is squealing, like metal on metal and it feels like something is rubbing. The mechanic i just brought it to is saying it's my a/c compressor deteriorating internally and my serpentine belt is cracked. My a/c works, it does NOT squeal when i turn it on, I thought for sure he would tell me it was breaks, rotors or something with the steering or axle. Is the mechanic lying to me? What could this be?

That doesn't sound right to me, but I'm not checking it. I would consider the brake wear squealers.

I would bring it to another mechanic and have it diagnosed(WARNING-That may cost a few dollars)........It may end up worth it.
