2002 Mazda Tribute Question: Rough Idle when air is on
This sounds like your Idle Air Control Motor is not properly compensating for the added load caused by the AC Compressor. Does your AC Compressor turn normally when it is on and does your AC system cool normally? Do you have a Check Engine Light on? Does your vehicle have normal power? Check for codes in your Engine Computer, a code P0505 is an Idle Air Control Motor fault. here is a repair manual site to help you as well. http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online - dandd
When starting the car after it has set for several hours, the engine coughs, sputters and tries to die. After driving for 5-10 minutes, it runs fine.
