Hi, guys.

When I turn on the AC, it starts with the compressor clutch engaging noise "Click" and water sloshing noise with it. After that it should just click whenever the compressor kicks in as far as I know from the experience of the other vehicles that I had owned. However, my X keeps making water sloshing noise with the click. Is this normal for X?

Thanks for your help.

No - no sloshing noises. A high pitch whine caused by the fan motor yes.

I hear a sloshing noise every once in a while too. I checked the AC coolant pressure and it's right on par, so... ? Whatever I guess.

WHEW! I thought you meant a different type of AC noise!

Ok, I think this is your problem, read my post in this thread and do that and report back. The R134A won't make that noise but the heater core will, Jacking with the temp control also jacks with water flow through the core as most allow a little bit of heat to run through to keep the AC from freezing solid in there, and this heat is what makes that water drip from there when you run the AC. Now someone will come by and blast me on this just trust me and do like I suggest in this link.
