How is engine idle rpm increased with AC on?
How is engine rpm idle increased when the air conditioner is switched on,
on a carb engine?
It doesn't seem to be working on my car, when the ac is switched on the engine is just about to stall until i press the gas pedal slightly.
Did not always behave this way...Noticing it this summer.
Can you please tell me whats up with it? :(
usually it works your engine to have the air on because it runs off of your crankshaft, but thats about the extent of what i know
did you check your vacuum lines?
Because Air Con runs off the engine, when you switch it on, power is drained from the (albeit on a small scale). Could be that your battery's not working as well as it once did?
