I am not sure what is going on with my 2014 Equinox LT and it is very aggravating. Due to the hot weather, my AC is on high, but it is on it squeals, but when off, no noise at all. People were telling me it could be my compressor, but I just bought this car a little over 3 weeks ago and already having to dish money out...Not Cool! What could be the problem?

Check out the belt tensioner whenever the ac kicks on it engages the compressor with a clutch, their is going to be a lot of resistance on that pulley once that happens it will start to slip causing that screeching just make sure your belt is good and tight not covered in oil or anything. I would take a ratchet and stick it in the hole on the tensioner if you have a little bit of time and see how much resistance their is or if its maxed out. right there on the passenger side/ visible
