Hi All. I have a 54 plate 9n with a/c and have noticed lately that only when the a/c is on, the cars performance is abismal. I know that a/c does put a heavy load on the engine and will affect performance to an extent but this just doesn't seem right, especially as it hasn't been like this in the past. The a/c still works perfectly so no issues in that area. Acceleration is really sluggish and it's hard to explain but the car feels double it's weight. The steering feels heavier and it feels at times as if the car is braking by itself upon lifting from the acceleration pedal. I had a front on collision recently where the front left headlight area, bonnet, grill and bumper were damaged. We were both accelerating from opposing junctions so speed was no more than 10/15mph, damage seems purely cosmetic. Sorry to ramble on but I figured I'd give you guys as much to work with as possible!
