On modern cars, the effect of the air-con is virtually negligible. It's older cars you gotta worry about.


i agree in my 97 ghia i barley notice any difference. actually when i had the belt off i could turn the clutch by hand it was hard but i was able to.


hmm thats strange, cause with my car and the belt off you can spin the compressor pulley with one finger....... is that normal?, cause i might add my aircon dont work either.......

was comin home from work about a week ago when it was high 30's, comin down evans rd in cranny with the climate control on 16 flatout, some idiot in a commo decided they were gonna haul on the brakes at the last second and turn left, slowed down to about 50ish behind him, then gave it a boot full around him in D. the car kicked back into 1st hard as all s***, then it hit 2nd at around 75-80 K's and chirped hard as anything into second almost with the traction control flashin at me as if i had a shift kit and it was turned all the way up.lol.its weird some days its good and some days its gutless witht he aircon.meh.
