I have a 2006 1.4 CDX. When I'm using the air con there is a very noticeable loss of power that is intermittent. You can be either accelerating or just cruising and you can feel the power loss as though something grabbed the car and pulled it back. What causes this and how can I remedy it?

Many thanks!

The compressor puts quite a load on the engine. It also cycles on and off which is why you feel it changing. How long have you owned the vehicle?

I've had the car for 2 years now. I'd like to upgrade to a 1.6 CDX but these are quite rare especially the post 2005 facelift versions

What kind of simple mods can I do to help give me now power and cause the engine less strain when the air con is on?

If the compressor is not straining to do it's work there's nothing you can do except beef up the engine which is not a simple mod.
