    I think it is a problem but I am not sure....when I put my AC or defrost on the AC cycles on and off...I figured it would remain on for the actual air conditioning but it doesnt. I looked under the hood and can see the clutch engagind and disengaging and every time it does it cause my idle to change (which is normal)...but does the cycling sound normal, if not how can I fix this?

    The compressor clutch kicks in when the system pressure gets too low. Once the pressure get high enough the clutch disengages. What you're describing is normal, brother. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    No problem. When the A/C is on max, then the compressor will stay on continously. With it on norm or bi-level or defrost, the compressor cycles on and off.
