Is this normal?? I know that when the compressor kicks on it puts a strain on the engine, but damn, this feels like i'm loosing like 30hp or something. You can feel your body kinda move foward when it kicks on. Also, how often should it kick on? Mine comes on and off just about every 6-8 secs. or so. Just wondering if this is normal, or if I have a problem.

also: the air conditioner and heater work fine, and it blows fine.

The only time the compressor should come on should be when the AC or the Defroster is on... If it keeps clicking on and off you more than likely have a freon leak somewhere.... The lack of freon will cause pressure problems causing it to click on and off...It should be either or... But it is normal to have a heavy drag....
