ford (Noise when AC runs)

1992 ford escort lxe Looouuuud squeek most often squeels upon starting but not always, seems to be worse if ac running but not always, don't think it's power steer pump for it doesn't squeek if wheel turned. could it be loose alternator belt or any other suggestions?

whenever I have a squeek in my belt system I always check all my belt(s) to make sure they are tight. Aloose belt will always (inmy experience) squeek. Also your a/ccompressor might be going out.I had the squeeking when my a/c compressor went out on my old car(76 cougar).

It is probably a loose or worn belt. When the ac is turned on there is more drag which will magnify the problem.

Depending on which motor you have, if it's a serpentine belt model you could also have a bearing going in either the tensioner of idler pulley.
