hey, i've got a 2012 6 speed skyactiv and whenever i'm running the a/c it seems like my revs drop much faster (and i screw up my shifts because i forget about it). is that normal? its really of annoying.
We've covered this a lot though. The extra heat under the hood with the A/C running and the parasitic effect it has on the engine make the car run shitty. Revs accelerating are a bit slower and starting off you have to use a bit more clutch and during engine braking it drops faster. But, usually if you have the A/C and it is like 70 degrees it isn't as bad! Just when it is hot out.
its been in the 90s with awful humidity for a week here in nc (and im a northern transplant, i can't handle it ugh). i never used to use it in my bmw cause it murdered the gas mileage but i figured i got the fuel efficient model i may as well indulge
its the fact that the AC works on a clutch system that uses power from the motor to turn. the heat under the hood has minimal effect i would think compared to the fact that a belt connects your AC to your motor so when you turn it on it slows down as it now has to spin this extra accessory. thats why when you turn it off vtec kicks in yo!
