    When I have the A/C on the engine has a rough idle. Also, when any fan setting is on, the A/C compressor cycles on and off.

    Is this normal?

    Is there anyway to determine if a compressor is on it's last legs?

    If the compressor cycles it is low on freon...

    Also, the pressure could be too high. If there's a clog somewhere in the lines, the pressure will go up rapidly, and the pressure cut-out switch on the condenser will cut power to keep from hurting the compressor.
