Hi guys!!
I just refilled R-12,and after that, my car got some rough idles
when the AC clutch turns ON..
At the time my VAC guage is reading 14 or 15.
And I found out when the AC clutch turns ON,the pulley vibrates
a little bit.
What can I do for it??
and How can I take off the AC pulley???
Thank you!

Check your engine mounts.. No, I'm not kidding. If the engine is resting on the subframe, it won't idle properly under a load. Nobody has a good reason for it, but it sure made a difference in my loaded idle speeds.

If the limit arms are resting on the bottom of the square bracket, the mounts have worn out. Another way to tell is simple.. If you have over 80,000 miles on the OEM mounts, they're gone.

Good luck.
