Some have motor mounts on the compressor and with 2 - 4 washers and keeper pins from hardware store clip them in place. This will hold down the compressor then remove afer delevery or may be noisy when turned on. check out your home refrigerator. As you know the compressor has a small piston in it and there is no way to stop it from moving also mark package as a " refrigeration unit " " this end up " . let sit 24 hours befor usin as the oil will be in the wrong place at the wrong time if it's been turned over.

Compressors have a thermal overload built inside that will shut down the compressor if the conditions are critical.

Idle the car with the AC running. Open the hood and look at the AC compressor- is the compressor engaged? (the front of the compressor (inside the belt) should be spinning. If not, then have the AC system recharged. If it is turning, then you've got the door to a duct stuck inside the unit.

Because maybe something inside the engine did break loose. For example lifters, rods, pistons, exc. too many things to list that may have broken loose. You may need a new or used engine or rebuilt old engine.

Shut down the outside unit and check for anything loose if it's a rattling noise. If you think the compressor is making noise get a tech. The water sloshing around sounds like a separate problem check the drain on the inside unit to see if it's clogged.
