Tickover problem

Post by rockhopper353 » Mon Dec 11, 2017 1:14 pm

When I press the clutch and apply the brake in traffic or at a junction the revs drop really low and then pick back up to the normal idle speed. They drop to a point where the car feels as if it's almost going to stall, any ideas on what the issue could be, presuming this isn't normal as I've never experienced it with any other car.
The car is a 2011 2.0L diesel tekna.

OK so driving home from work tonight I've turned the air conditioning off and it doesn't do it, the revs just drop to 750rpm which i think is normal, this is also the case with the AC off but the blower still on.
Turn the AC on and dip the clutch and the revs drop to 500rpm and the car stutters before rising back up to 750rpm, any thoughts please.

Just checked and it’s static at normal tick over ie about 750rpm irrespective of status of aircon/fan combination.

Mine is fine as well when just letting it tickover, the issue occurs as I previously said when stopping in traffic / junctions etc when you apply the brake and then fully engage the clutch, that's the point at which the revs drop to 500rpm causing the car to judder before the revs go back up to normal tickover at 750rpm and settle.
Could you check this when your next driving with AC on. Thanks

Checked again numerous times over the last couple of days. Dip the clutch and the rpm drops and holds at a fracrion under 1000rpm until the vehicle becomes stationary, at which point the revs drop to 750rpm. This is the case irrespective of the running mode on the ac unit.
