Hello, I've come across your YouTube video on how to fix your A/C system in your car. My interesting issue is that my idle drops low then spike up and makes the car shake when the A/C button is pressed, but when it's not it idles fine with no drop in idle at all. I do have hardened engine mounts which is a cause of it, but it drops idle to the point it seems like it's going to stall (which is obvious, because the A/C button activates the compressor clutch), but when I drive the car and I come to a stop, idle drops down to let's say 600 RPMs, then spikes up to 1,500 then goes back to normal idle at 800-900. A/C clutch seems to be spinning at all times, but I assume it stops spinning when it drops in idle. Now I have an Acura Integra Type R motor swapped into my 1999 Civic Hatch, and I have friends who don't have this issue, I've had it for about 2 years and can't get my head around it. I've been to mechanics, electricians, and asked forum pages what the issue could be, and I've been told it's normal, but I don't think it is because other people have had A/C in their car without issues. I've done everything possible and done research, but I have zero idea. I could suspect condenser is on its way out? Or its out ages ago but it holds freon fine, have had the pressure checked and its holding good.
have the same problem?
