What is wrong when your car air compressor makes noise?

The a/c compressor may be on it's way out. Don't wait to replace it. As it is wearing out, it sends trash into the a/c system making it difficult and costly to clean out the system. Some parts can't be cleaned and have to be replaced. If it is not cleaned out completely the remaining trash will damage the new compressor in a short time.
