    ok heres where it gets strange imo. When the a/c is on you can feel the car jerking off and on ..it feels like someone is bending a fuel line to cut the fuel feed off ..then it kicks back in ,..then back off over and over..i just replace the fuel filter..kinda nasty.new plugs.cap,button,wires are good.new alternator,new battery. im lost here.and opions? :dunno:

    or is this normal. as im sure it didnt do this when it was a new car.

    If it heats up in traffic your high speed fan may not be coming on.

    Maybe install a manual switch on the fan so you can turn it on before it starts getting too hot and keep the temps down a little.

    Mine does this. I cant use the A/C when my car is stopped or when it is in traffic. I cant even run it with my car idling or when I turn the steering wheel. It is too taxing for the engine. My computer also hates my e-cam which doesnt supply enough vacuum and causes other drivability problems.

    Just use the A/C when you are on the highway or on the road with little stop and go's, do not use it when you are in traffic because it may cause stalling, it will cause your RPMs to go down and it will also cause surging (i think thats what you are talking about).

    It sucks and its one of those things that we SN95ers have to put up with
    Just use your windows until you get going and then you can crank the A/C back up

    well the local garage said i was leaking freeon. and my compressor was bad, but the thing is if it was bad it would just lock up, so it wont explode the compressor, so when i put a new belt on it and blew cold i thought it was fixed.
