    Hey Guys,

    When I start my 08 V6 Tacoma in the morning cold and turn the A/C on it makes a "thunk" noise. SO bad I thought maybe a cat had crawled up inside my engine compartment and got stuck in the belt or something. It seems to only happen cold and when the A/C is on. Im thinking maybe the A/C clutch is bad. Anyone else have this problem or anything like it? Ive got an oil change coming up soon I think Ill take it to the dealer and find out whats up. But I wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem.

    Thanks Guys
