Is there a typo in this "clutch as compressor"? Not sure what you mean.

Ah, fan clutch you can change yourself for less than $100 and maybe thirty minutes of work. The ac compressor is between $150-200 depending on where you by it. You can install it yourself but you may be better having a shop do it for you.

It's $250-300 in parts plus labor. Maybe $500 total or so.

It certainly could. Either one of those things alone would make noise potentially.

Ok we'll I just found out that its a compressor with the clutch inside of it so replacing the a/c compressor would fix my problem. Another question. Not getting this fixed immediately, what other problems could this cause?

---------- Post added at 06:56 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:56 PM ----------

Because I don't even use my air conditioner in the car

Ah okay, it'll just be noisy but if you don't use your ac just buy a delete pulley for $50 and remove it.

Should this be empty? It's connected to my a/c compressor.

That is your power steering pump and no empty is bad. That is probably where you noise is coming from.

You don't really need to bypass the ac. Just leave it alone if it's not making noise.

If it is empty its probably leaking, clean it up, add more fluid, see where its leaking. Also that would be making a noise.
