AC compressor pulley does not spining right..
i mean it suppose to be spin like this | (aligned)

but it does like / \, looks like it is bent or something..


will this cause drop below 800rpm idle??
it only happens when engine is not warmed up.
it goes by engine warmed up..

Something is whack, man. You might check to see that everything is tightened up. I haven't ever needed to tighten. replace or do anything to my A/C pulley aside from route a belt around it on occasion. Not sure how to tighten it up.

oh forgot to mention that i had hit on my high flow cat pipe, engine pushed back and had to replace this and that.
and everything is fixed to running condition, but by looking at it, ac compressor pulley is not spinning right. it spins and stops, spins, stops without any pattern.
Seems like ac compressor is broken or something..
but is this cause idle rpm drops and cause engine die??
and then it is oaky when engine is warmed up.

....the compressor clutch,I thought,was pressure/temp controlled?If it stays engaged all the time the pressure could get a little high don't you think?
