What causes front end of a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire to vibrate with the ac on?

Well, the compressor might be loose, so when it's engaged, it shakes and thus shakes the entire engine. Or, you may have a loose or broken motor or transmission mount. If this is the case, you would commonly feel some shaking that doesn't feel right and this shaking could be worsened by the compressor being engaged.

Why does the compressor run after turning off 1994 SSE Bonneville?

I would like the answer to this question also. AnswerWhen you say "after turning off 1994...", I'm assuming you mean turning off the A/C. The clutch on the compressor might be stuck, or the relay that controls it may be sticking. Try pulling the fuse or unplugging the compressor connector and seeing what it does. If it still runs, you've got a bad clutch on the compressor. IF YOU PULL THE CONNECTOR AT THE COMPRESSOR, MAKE SURE THE ENGINE IS OFF BEFORE YOU DO. Don't blame me if you get hung up in the belt.
