'06 Chrysler 300 2.7L - idle when A/C used, help!

35

Asked by Aug 07, 2017 at 07:09 PM about the 2006 Chrysler 300 Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 122k miles.
Whenever I turn on the A/C, the car's RPMs go down some. It jerks the
engine.
What can this be? I've read about the EGR valve and most recently I saw a
video of an air compressor which can cause the same.
I appreciate any feedback and/or guidance on experience with this.

when the ac compressor turns on it makes your motor run harder especially on older cars and you have a 11 year old car its not a problem. its normal
