    I have a 2010 Tacoma 4x4 with a 4 cyc. engine,it has 8000 miles on it,the truck has impressed me in everyway except when its really hot the ac compressor makes noise like grinding noise if you turn the ac off the noise stops or if you push in on the clutch its quiet,almosts sounds like a throw out bearing on a clutch,any ideas?

    Seems like the clutch pack on the ac compressor has gone bad. Take it back to dealership so they can R&R it.

    Ok the dealer had a simillar complaint and replaced the throw out bearing in the clutch,I asked why it only made the noise when the a/c compressor was on? The tech stated it is where the compressor is located,when I got the truck back it the noise seemed to be gone,I only got it to make the noise once,my brother has the exact truck he said "Royal Purple" oil in the gear boxes fix the problem so not sure whats next_
