Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 95 nissan altima. The belt for the compressor starts squeaking when I turn on
either the ac or the heat. The heat works fine but the ac isn't running. Any ideas what
my problem would be? I took a look while running the ac and the belt was kinds
jamming. It would not be moving as smoothly as when I had the ac off. When the ac or
heat is off the belt is running like there is no issue. Not sure what other information
might help. But thanks guys.

That sounds like a locked up A/C compressor.
