I would check the fuel pressure and replace the fuel filter, if it hasn't been done in awhile. Is the check engine light on?

the engine doesn't like the extra stress of the air con unit being run _ there is no way of fixing this _ unless you get a full engine overhaul or a secondhand engine and installed _ the engine is old and the extra pressure on it with the aircon it just cant handle it

Why the rpm of toyota corolla 1994 model goes down when aircon is turned on


Because aircon uses a lot of power, it causes the revs to drop and the car to use more fuel. Just a fact of life. If you don't NEED to use the aircon - don't use it. And if you do need to use it, expect expenses to rise.

Car jerks sometimes when going from P to R


It's the transmission sensor. I've had mine replaced three times now. You can fix it (see this thread: http://www.suzuki-forums.com/suzuki-forenza-reno-forum/35284-transmission-range-sensor-all-you-need.html) and please report it to Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934

Car jerks when I stop only when I have air conditioner on


When the aircon is switch on it puts a substantial load to the engine: you need to get your car tuned to take into account the load from the aircon. Most car have a mechanism that increases the idle speed when the aircon is active: if you are unable to get your car tuned yet, try making the engine idle speed slighty faster while you have the aircon turn-on (the ajustment screw should be close to the accelator cable connection at your engine end). Don't make the idle speed too high and check by turning the aircon off and on to assess the best compromise idle speed to stop your car from almost stalling (e.g. jerking).

Good luck!

Rpm drop when open a/c


First of all, a drop in power when AC turned on, is not uncommon due to the fact that it puts quite a noticeable load on a 4 cyl engine, but in saying that your IAC (idle air control motor) should be compensating for the extra load and adjusting idle to normal when this occurs. Try pulling the IAC off & clean it & port it comes out of real good with throttle body spray cleaner, and re-installl it and see if that helps. As far as steering jerking, take a close look at belt condition as well as tension on belt, as it may need adjustment or belt and/or tensioner replaced.

My car is jerking and will stall when the air is on


Look at your RPM gauge, before and after, putting on the A/C. Does the RPM drop with the A/C on? May need to adust the idling or check the throttle sensor

'93 Impreza L wagon, will turn on but will drop rpm under 1K.


most older cars were designed to run between 600 to 800 rpm so its not an issue, if the aircon is on it should pick up a few hundred rpm but dont be to concerned unless its dropping below 500rpm. these cars have a lot of low end torque so you wont have any trouble getting off the line.
