Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla
I live in a hot, humid area. 90 degrees and above sometimes 100 degrees. Sometimes when when sitting idle, e.g., at a stoplight for more than a few minutes, and yes, i have my ac on, i feel my car like kind of shake and like its almost going to give out, like my car is going to shut off. i will turn my ac down and i usually never have it on full blast, just on 2. or i will just try to drive up for a foot or two. its like if im constatnly going its fine, but when its hot and i sit for a few mins in traffic it feels like it could cut off. what is this? what do i do? please help!!
This could honestly be several different things, but make sure your alternator is charging your battery correctly, have your battery checked as well, and have a ob2 scanner hooked up to it, this can be done at part stores usually for free. Sounds like the engine is having trouble handling the extra strain of an a/c but the only way to single it out is to check it out. good luck
