AC seriously impacts engine?
 
Hey guys
05' Laredo driver here. 33k miles. I know that when the AC is on, the engine of a car bogs down slightly, but it seems that on my jeep it nearly cripples the engine. It takes forever to get up to speed. Is this normal? First Jeep btw.
Thanks in advance

I don't think so. I have a 3.7 and it doesn't affect my engine too bad at all.

Are you revving the engine very high an driving like a race care driver?

Nope I'm a casual driver. Got as much patience as a stone.

Compressor maybe going out (clutch wheel when it gets engaged?) I'm not a mechanic, but I'll try to take a guess :)
