    I just installed the A/C compressor, and took my car to the shop today
    to have the guy install my belt for the compressor, well it cost me
    $119.00 just to have the belt installed, and I am piss broke.

    Well now I am happy that I finally have AC in the car, because I had it
    for 1 year and the AC never worked. It's 95 degrees outside, hot and
    humit and now the car shakes while the car is in park, and running with
    the AC on. If the AC is off, the car doesn't shake.

    It's a 93 Honda Civic LX Manual.

    Is it normal for the car to shake while in park with the AC on? when
    the car is moving it doesn't shake. I assume the AC compressor is 50HP
    and likes to go for a jog or something... lol

    Thanks for your help.

    No. However, as the engine mounts age, more vibration will be transmitted
    to the body, so you'll feel a bit more vibration than when the car was new.

    Make sure the EACV and the throttle body are clean. Then make sure the base
    idle is correctly set. When a load is applied, the idle should dip
    slightly, then rise back up to its correct speed.

  3. On a related issue, my daughter has a '93 Accord LX auto, and it shakes at
    idle, especially with the A/C on. Haynes isn't helpful - it says the rear
    mounts in the auto models are electronically controlled, and then says any
    problem has to be taken to the dealer. Any tips on that?
