That is probably the A/C compressor. It can run in several modes including floor/defrost and floor/panel, even if the heat is turned toward hot.

Try driving a base ranger with a/c and an auto... my buddy had one with the 2.3 in it, and it bogged BAD. He told me that it felt like 2 of the 4 squirrels died when you turned the a/c on.

You could even it out by tossing a boat anchor on a chain out the back each time the AC compressor turns off.
