Icon6 Bad Vibrations....

Hi, well my problem is when I turn my A/C on when driving in the city (stop/go). As the compressor turns on that is when the vibration starts when it turns itself off the vibs stop, and this goes on and on. The vibs are worse on the steering wheel but it can be felt in the whole dash. And what is odd I donīt see the rpm drop.On the highway with the A/C on nothing is felt and when the A/C is off in the city the car runs perfect. HELP !!!!
Note: vehicle is an accord exl 2000, 2.3l F23A1 engine, auto 4spd

Depending upon how severe the vibrations are, it is either normal or your A/C Compressor is getting on in life.

Ok SHIPO you are probably right since my original compressor is making a funny cricket type of noise when it turns on. When itīs off the noise stops meaning that the problem is inside the compressor not in the clutch. Well here comes a new compressor. What is odd is that the A/C is still working beautifully. Lets see what happen,thanks....
