Idle speed with A/C on Motronic equipped 33s
During this weekend I've replaced one of the A/C condenser fans, because the
housing of the original one was cracked, and it is proved to be fatal to the fan motor.
While I was "having fun" grinding away the rotten nuts in the wheel bay, I started
thinking about the idle RPM with A/C. It is never rises when the A/C compressor is engaged,
the idle speed remains the same. Because here in Hungary not too much 33s exists today,
especially with A/C (they are very rare) I am not able to compare the behavior regarding
the idle speed.
On other Motronic equipped cars the idle speed is raised with 150 to 200 RPM, when the A/C
compressor is running.
So I'm looking for experiences with late 1.5ie, 1.7ie (with Motronic MP3.1) or 1.7 16V models.
