Dear Pakwheelers & Gurus
I need your help and suggestion
i have Honda city 2011 (51,000 km) manual on petrol only and maintained by Honda never seen any other mechanic
below are the issues
With AC my car RPM drops to 400 or less when idle or when i apply clutch for gear change.
- simultaneously with AC car pickup die and i feel like riding a donkey cart. and it is embarrassing specially when i am in the front of a red signal.
- over all acceleration is also very pathetic with AC. some times when i accelerate from 0 speed on first gear there is no response and after 2 to 3 seconds car suddenly accelerate
car has been checked by different Honda dealers in Karachi they all say you need to fill Hi-Octain 50% with normal petrol
i have done this even with 95% Hi-Octain of PSO Caltax & Shell, had my throttle body serviced also but with AC result is same and average is around 11km/ltr
But when i drive my car without AC results are totally different pickup becomes great and it accelerates nicly and average is around 15 to 16 Km/lts
please help me as what can be done to improve pick up and acceleration with AC
