There's an idle speed up solenoid at the carburetor. When you switch on the A/C the solenoid is energized and speeds up the idle to compensate for the added load of the A/C compressor. HTH. -Jim

Yes, when you select any of the A/C settings on the dash control panel the solenoid is energized. It is also energized when defrost is selected. No matter what gear you're in. It's a single, usually green, wire that plugs into the solenoid. HTH. -Jim

In drive, fully warmed up, with the A/C off, and the vacuum advance hose, at the distributor, disconnected and plugged, the idle speed should be 650 RPMs. Now if this is only a cold issue the fast idle setting and automatic choke may nneed attention as well. HTH. -Jim
