If the sound is like a loud screeching. That comes on and off. Then one of your belts is rubbing and might be damaged. So i suggest that you inspect them.

Belts squeak because they are loose. First fix that. The boom noise is the loose belt slapping around and hitting something. Losing power happens because the lose belt causes your generator to stop working. When the electricity goes off, it tells your computer, "Something is drastically wrong." The computer then slows down the engine.

1987 Nissan Pathfinder power steer pulley slows down it's revs and belt squeals when turning Is it the belt or the pump?

This sounds like a classic case of the belt tension being incorrect. The pump is loaded when turning to full lock in either direction and causes the belt to slip when to loose. Adjust the belt and the noise should go away. If it is excessively worn it may pay to replace the belt.

What causes a noise under the hood when the air conditioning is on in the car?

I'm not a mechanic but these are the culprits that I've experienced: 1. If you turn off the AC and there is no more noise then: a. Your compressor belt may be loose. Check the tension of the belt near the AC compressor. If the belt seems loose a +/- 1/2 inch give then it's too loose. If the Belt is so tight you cant move it an 1/8th inch, too tight.. could damage pulley. b. The Compressor pulley might be bad. Have a mechanic check it. Compressor parts can go bad and they work hard in extreme hot states like Texas. If it's not a belt, I'd pay to have the compressor checked. If you dont then live with the sound and when the pulley dies, deal with it? :)
