A /c on car is really for lack of better terms jumpy

Any how my 93 bird 3.8 is really jumpy for lack of better termanology. A/c off, and she is smooth. A/c on and she jumps . Its really noticable around 30 or 40. You can feel it at all speed hwy and city. Dont know what the problem or challange would be, im stumped.

It could be low on freon. What are the pressure readings when it's running?

Re: A /c on car is really for lack of better terms jumpy

I just had the unit serviced. compressoer is new condensor is new. I dont know what the readings should be. The system was also converted over to R134. My bank hates me right now because i keep spending money on her. struts, shocks; kyb all around. not to mention rear brakes. and lets not forget all the stuff i wrench on as well. I need to clean my maf which of course i'm procrastinating and my mechanic is still working on getting all my egr parts. sensors and all. When I bought the car i realized that the person i got it from had taken off all parts acciated with egr and the delete was not done correctly. also my mil lamp showing low signal from maf, and all egr stuff aswell. easy to fix just not motivated. car looked great out side and the interior is great aswell, no tears and clean. then again car is 17 years old. She just needs the tlc. and to have her older parts replaced. The car had stock struts and shocks, stock man o man. luckly springs are good. Money Money.

Did the new compressor come with a new clutch assembly or was the old one reused?
