Car drives differently with new AC?


Asked by Jul 30, 2016 at 06:59 PM about the 2002 Pontiac Sunfire SL Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire. I just got a new AC system installed because
the old one went out a few years back. The car feels a little heavier when I
press on the pedal to accelerate, and its vibrates a little when I accelerate
as well. After that it seems okay, maybe takes a while to get up to speed.
This only happens when the AC is turned on... Will this hurt the car? Is
there anything I can do to fix this?
