Air conditioning
Hi there. I am a new member. I have a 62 bmax titanium auto. I would be grateful for some advice on a problem that has arisen with my air conditioning. The car runs perfectly but when I switch on the air conditioning the engine stutters and runs rough. Has anyone came across this before? Some advice would be gratefully received. Thank you in advance

I found this on the net -

Why does my car sputter when AC is on?
Low Refrigerant in the AC System: If your AC system is low on refrigerant, it will make the compressor cycle on more frequently, increasing the load on your engine. ... Bad Belt: One often overlooked cause of a car surging with the AC on is actually a worn compressor belt.

So hopefully not a major problem.

It pays to regularly run the aircon, even in the winter. I have a friend who never turns his off.
It prevents the seals from drying out.
