Unhappy weird weird weird

This weekend I decided to take my car for a ride. Everything was fine, it was kind of hot, so I decided to turn my air conditioner on. Five minutes after I turned the air conditioner on my car started to act weird. The car almost came to a sudden stop, and the transmition acted like it was going to fall apart. When the air conditioner was off the car ran just fine. I just did a recent tune up on my car, the idel in my car is perfect, and the engine runs strong. It seems to me that everytime I turn my AC on my car, or my transmition is about to fall. It doesnt make sense. The AC when turned on does work throughout the whole car. If anybody could give me any suggestions please e-mail me at [email protected].

Thanks.

What kind of car/tranny? Turbo? Non-Turbo? Stickshift? Manual? The A/C takes a lot out of an engine, especially on a warm day, I would doubt the tranny is acting up as much as the engine may not be as strong because it's working to run the A/C compressor.

Your A/C compressor is run off of one of the drive belts. The compressor has a clutch on it. When the A/C is turned off, the clutch is disengaged, and the wheel on the compressor that the belt goes around can spin freely. When the A/C is turned on, the clutch is engaged and the belt now has to turn the compressor as well.

If the compressor is starting to sieze up, then the belt will be having a bitch of a time trying to spin it, which means that the engine will be having a bitch of a time trying to spin the belt.
