'95 Geo Tracker?

Would there be any serious harm from removing the V belt from the AC pump from my '95 Geo Tracker? I would install another V belt to run the power steering. At this time of the year I do not need the AC and could use the extra power as any additional HP on my Tracker would be a plus. Do not want to remove AC equipment entirely as I want the option for hot summer weather if needed. Thanx for the help.

I ain't wrong! I ain't sorry! And it's probably gonna happen again!

You'll probably get a better answer if you post over in the Suzuki Geo All forum.

Typically the A/C compressor has a clutch, electrically operated, so that the compressor is only running, using the precious horses, when you have the A/C turned on. So removing the belt wouldn't save you a measurable amount of engine power.

Some vehicles run the A/C along with the defroster to dry out the air that is blowing on the windshield, so you might loose that if you remove the belt. Some vehicles momentarily turn the A/C on when you turn the engine off to help keep the engine from dieseling.

Can you hear the silence?
