SHAKES WITH AC ON AND IDLE

2001 Honda Accord

Shakes or Wobbles problem
2001 Honda Accord 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

When I have the AC on, my Accord rumbles and shakes when I come to a stop. If I turn off the AC, the car stops shaking.

Could it be the timing belt? My car has 105,000 miles on it and I have never changed the timing belt.

Any advice? Thank you.

Not likely. But you should do that belt ASAP. You can try a tune up while you are at it.A/C will cause this due to th efact it loads the engine down more at idle. Also check your engine mounts, if they are worn or sagging you will feel more vibration that if they are good
