the ac compressor runns with a pump wich is powered by the engine, when the engine isnt really "reving" it cant reall pump it. you can also try recharging your ac unit

yea it was just recharges some one was telling me there is a switch to keep the rpm higher when ac is on could that be broke maybe?

no the motor automatically adjusts when a higher load is pushed on it, aka a/c. you could raise the idle manually tho.

so why does it idle hella funny when i put the ac on and then the ac turns off or it stops working till i start to go .and it idles fine??

because the a/c compressor is putting a load on the engine (which is pretty bad on my b16) its common and of course your going to have warmer air at idle compared to 3k when its actually got some rpms for the compressor, everything you explained isn't uncommon so don't worry about it, (and your air will be colder on recirculation btw)

then they possibly didnt' charge it right or its not at correct pressure, cause mine sitting at idle isn't as cold as when i'm driving BUT its still decent enough to cool off my car while i let it warm up
