I am working on a 2002 Cavalier. It runs fine without the AC on, but when the AC is on the rpm's go crazy. Normal idle for this car is about 700 rpm's, but when the AC is on the rpm's will randomly shoot up to 1,500 rpm's for a few seconds and back down again. It also does this when driving slow speed, or up hills. Any ideas on what the problem could be?It has new spark plugs and wires, air filter, and I have checked the battery and alternator.
It could be a defective (IAC) Idle Air Control valve or a dirty MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor, Clean the MAF, and have the IAC tested and replaced if necessary. ... 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe
