88 bronco, I have a question: I turn my A/C on and it starts squeaking--I don't think it's the timing belt, but whatever the thing is that sticks into the engine when activated looks pretty suspect. have any idea what it is? It's a 92 Ford Ranger

I think you answered your question.

Yeah, I've learned a lot about car troubleshooting simply by my uncle fixing all the probs in the stupid thing. Oil gaskets breaking, clutch fluid leaking, brakes squeaking, oil leaking even AFTER it got fixed. Starter has died twice, and this a/c problem.

I'm gonna keep it until I know how to fix everything that can be fixed in a car.

Based on the timing of the squeal I would blame the AC compressor bearings.
