When you turn the ac on it engages the ac clutch which is turned by a fan belt which is turn by the engine. you are making the engine work harder. The idle speed might be set to low or it,s time for a tune up.

How do you adjust the idle on a 1997 Honda civic?

I have a 97 Hond Accord I just bought and it was idling at 1500 rpm standing still in park. You can adjust the idle by adjusting the throttle cable at the throttle body. There is two nuts on each side of the bracket, loosen both and slide cable until you reach 900 to 1000 rpm range or if you want higher idle adjust it up. If that doesnt fix it check for a vacuum leak. They will also cause your engine to idle higher.

Is it normal for a 2009 civic si to idle hi when you start it up?

I am a certified aircraft powerplant technician, and owner of a 2006 Honda Civic Si. As with all internal combustion engines, it is considered normal for an engine to idle "high" during a cold start up. During this period, the oil is coming up to optimal temperatures, coolant is beginning to flow through the crank case, etc. In my personal experience with my Si, my vehicle will idle at about 1500 RPM for a good minute before it begins to drop to a normal (engine warm) idle speed of 800 RPM. However, if you are experiencing idle speeds in excess of 2500+ RPMs during a cold start, or your vehicle demonstrates this high idle when your engine has been running for over 5 minutes, you may want to take your vehicle in to be examined.

Will a civic headlight fit on a civic si?

Depending on what year you are talking about it can be interchangeable. For instance if you have a 2001 to 2005 Civic and these are either 2 door or 4 door and want to make it work for a Civic Si in that year range then no because it is a different body style in this case a hatchback. But if you have a 2006 and up civic and want to put civic si headlights or vice versa it will work fine as long as it is specific for two door model or four door model.

What causes rough running in 1992 ford explorer xlt v6 4.0L?

Could be a number of things, cheap and easy start pulling spark plugs and check to see if there all consistent if any look like they have well worn electrodes replace them all. If plugs good depending on if its a rough idle or at all rpms, idle it could be idle air control valve or O2 sensor or about 20 other sensors so best to have scan done at local shop, especially if check engine light is on, just ask them to get code and the rest can be figured out. Fuel injector cleaner by seafoam is good product or marvel mystery oil good too if u want to clean fuel system and replace fuel filter, just a good thing to do if not done before "it is a filter" recc replacement every 50k or whatever
