hey folkes!

well summer is here which means is A/C time. I have noticed that when i have my A/C on, it really take power away from the engine, when i drive and i let go of the gas, i can feel something slowing the car down, almost like im just slightly touching the brakes...i take the A/C off...and it feels like the natural "coasting" feeling....maybe im just being paranoid...i know that the compressor is going to take some of the power away, but is it really supposed to be noticable?:dunno:

could this be a compressor waiting to pack it in? or normal?

also, thinking about getting a performance clutch...any suggestions?

thanks!:)

It is normal. The a/c will suck your engine power and thus consume more gas along the way. Its the price you pay for comfort! As far as the clutch goes, I would upgrade the pulleys. It puts less load on the engine
