Is your compressor cycling on and off very quickly? If it is low on charge, It will quick cycle, and that will fluctuate your rpms. It may or may not still cool. Your car will recover from the load, but it takes a second or so. When you are driving, it would not be noticeable. Good luck!

ur rpms bounce because your a/c vompressor is kicking on which is more resistance on ur belt.. it doesnt do it when youre driving because youre rpms are higher

So i'm trying to find the damn thing but i think i have a good idea. Could the throttle body and the iac valve be one whole piece? cuz that's what i think i'm seeing and is it possible to clean that valve with carb cleaner through the throttle body? i'll try and post a pic of what im seeing and see if its right

The first picture here is where i think it is fused together with the throttle body as one piece underneath the hose



then in this photo you can see where the silver cylinder shape thing is underneath the throttle body



so i'm i heading in the right direction? my plan is to take off that huge black hose and then hopefully there is a hole in the throttle body to squirt some carb cleaner in there and hope that works?

yeah that's what i was thinking at first but ice cold air still comes out, so wouldn't no cold air be coming out? and it prolly drops like 250 rpms while idling at a stop light
