    Clunking coming from driver's side in the engine bay.

    I just got my car back from the shop, and I've noticed a couple little things. First, the car "clunks" when the heat is running. It'll clunk once, then there's a second or two delay, then another clunk. I noticed that it looks like the condenser spins up, because the revs increase during the longer delays. I didn't notice this before the accident. Do you guys know what this could be, or how to fix it?

    Hey, if it helps I had this same issue. I re-charged my A/C with R-134A and what I thought was a "good" gauge set. I apparently overfilled the system, and I had the same CLUNK that you express. It's a safety feature of the system. I released quite a bit of refrigerant, and the noise went away. With the heat on, your system uses the A/C compressor ( I know it's odd, but it's done that way ). After your accident, they most likely overfilled... Hope this helps you brother..
