Six cylinder two wheel drive automatic 65,294 miles.
My vehicle has been great with normal maintenance. My battery was hard cranking and needed to be replace, so I stopped by the local parts store and bought a new battery last weekend and replaced my battery.
Here is where the problem started: that night after changing my battery, I went to use the defroster. When the A/C compressor engages at idle in park or neutral every five to ten seconds the idle drops and will either almost stall the engine or occasionally does stall the engine. This happens in drive as well, and when driving, since the rpm's drop and come back up, the vehicle surges at low speeds. The rpm drop only occurs when any A/C component is on (A/C, defroster, or re-circulation), when just the vent is on, the rpm does not drop and the engine run fines.
Please help me with this question, it seems like this is not a one of a kind problem.
Thank you in advance!
have the same problem?
