Default Howdy !

Just wanted to say howdy from South Texas.
I'm a new PT owner, 2005 Convertible Turbo
Dark Gray.
I needed a 3rd vehicle in the family and found a
well taken care of 100k mi. PT in my price range.

I stumbled on to the forum looking for top
cleaning and care advice (1st Ragtop).
It looks like there is a wealth of information on here.

The car runs perfect. Rides and shifts great.
I do notice a vibration in the wheel at idle
only with the A/C on. I will look at the motor
mounts. If I bring it up of of idle a hundred RPM
or so it smooths out.
Thanks for what appears to be a great community!

Freebee aka Marc

Make sure your fan is working when the AC turns on, the low speed on the fan fails, the AC needs the air flow thru the condenser to cool, if not when stopped the compressor will lug the engine, hence your crappy idle and vibration.

YOu might also take the IAC Motor off the Throttle Body and clean the deposits off and will idle better.
