car shakes with I turn the air conditioning on

Every time I turn the air conditioning on, the car shakes considerably when at a stoplight, and the compressor kicks on. Anything I can do to resolve this? Same thing happened in my last car (2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse), so I know nothing is wrong.

Any ideas?

Means you're engine is on the cusp of exploding....








Kidding. It's normal. You should also feel vibration even with the A/C off, just not as noticeable.

lol, thanks for the info. It's really not that bad, and with the stiff suspension it's understandable the car shakes.

How about a loss of power? I really don't notice much, while in my last car it seemed like whenever you put the air conditioning on the horsepower was cut in half.

Power should drop a tad if A/C on. But that's with all cars.

It is possible that it could be a mount as Oldrotor said.
I have had to have the engine mounts and trans mount changed on our first RX-8.
It was an AT. Could have the dealer look at it.
More than likely it is just normal in your case.

^^^Yeah I already told him that it was normal. But the idle is normally rough with the Renesis so you'll feel slight vibrations in the car regardless whether you have the flash or not.

wow,

wrong. again. and you harshed him out for being stupid... with the s flash is smoothed out the idle a whole lot, most important is when the ac kicks in...

the rough idle little issue now is when the car drops back to idle while coasting to a stop...

and it could be bad motor mounts... or a loose plug wire or dirty plugs. since he has given us any info to go on... cant really guess much.

just when i think you have figured it out i get stuff like this...

i think i have told huskyfan to search your posts.. as the same ? come up over and over again...

beers

I have the 's' flash and I only noticed a difference with the A/C on/off. Otherwise there is still vibration at idle. I feel the vibration start the car up, and at a stoplight.
