    That's normal, the A/C compressor puts a big load on the engine so the computer pushes the idle up when the system is on. As the car gets older, this becomes more noticeable because the engine has worn a little and becomes less efficient at idle. When you switch the system off, the engine doesn't have to work so hard to maintain a steady idle so it is much smoother and lower because the computer isn't pushing it up.

Air conditioner is clogged up and water runs out on floorboard of passenger side. This is 2006 Ford Taurus


Locate the drain tube then runs from the heater box to under the car. Run a pipe cleaner up through the drain tube until you remove the clog. It'll be messy and stinky.

2004 chevy aveo when i turn ac on it runs hot and when i turn ac off it cools down


The AC puts allot of heat load on the engine so of course it will run hotter but not overheat the engine, if that happens you may have a clogged radiator.

T air conditioner on my 2003 Dodge Caravan runs for awhile ,then cuts off and refuses to run. Maybe the next time i turn it on it comes on again and runs goodfor a while.and then the same thing happens.


It is probably low on freon. If you have a pressure gauge for air conditioning you can check this out. Any good automotive shop have these in stock at cheap prices. Good luck!

My Air conditioner only works on high


The switch that runs the blower motor for air and heat sends the DC voltage through some big resisters when it isn't set on high. (On high it sends all the power to the motor.)
If the lowest speed doesn't work then one of the resisters has gone bad, or come disconnected. If more than 1 speed doesn't work then a differant resister has gone bad or disconnected. The power runs through each resister in series so the most common one to go bad is the second to highest speed. when this resister is bad thaen it will only work on the highest setting. Replacing the switch won't fix it. You will have to find the resister that is bad and replace it.
The resister bank is usually tucked up behind the dash where only a kid can focus his eyes, and contort himself enough to see it.
Once the resister is replaced it should run perfectly.
Presto.

Air conditioner doesn't work


problems yes low high and high low are usually caused by faulty defective clutch coil or defective thermostat...electrical issues can be cycling switch pressure switches ambient air sensor or fin switch ( evap temp sensor)
Mechanically it could be clutch,or compressor the symptoms are not good... srry hit me back if you got some manual gauges and wanna run pressure test diagnostics..

Yes most like the relay needs replacing. This is easy access as it is near the ac compressor and not too expensive.
