A couple of questions on Suzuki Sidekick 95 JX 4dr

I just became a member of off-road.com by buying a 95 Suzuki Sidekick JX yesterday. It has 104,000 miles on it. Since I did not get any maintenance record from the previous owner, I am trying to check everything and make sure it is in OK condition.
One problem I have with this car is that I constantly hear some metalic vibration (cranking sound?) from the bottom when I start to drive accelerate at a low speed say, 20 mph. Once the car reaches a certain speed say 35 or 40 mph, that sound disappear. Could anyone give me tips about this symptom?
Another issue is air conditioner. The air is coming out but it is not cold, not even cool. It's just a wind coming out of vent. What is the usual step to check A/C?

Well, my recommendation on any used vehicle purchase is to first get a factory service manual. Then, change ALL of the fluid including brake. Do a complete tuneup including adjusting the valves, changing the timing belt and charging the AC. Check the brakes, clutch and exhaust, then see if there are any unidentifiable noises.
