2005 Outback LTD 2.5l 4EAT
i was waiting outside a friends house today. the ac was on, outside temp was about 100 deg. F. after a few minutes the engine seemed to start running rough. i turned the ac off and it ran fine. i opened the hood and found a rats nest on top of the engine!! i threw away the big stuff and vacuumed it all out when i got home. the only damage i found was one small wire chewed through but it was for the remote start. i spliced it back together. anyway, i noticed the ac clutch was not cycling. i don't think i've ever seen it stay engaged more than 15 seconds since I've owned the car! today i timed it for 3 minutes before i turned it off. and now to make things more interesting... on the highway or if i rev the engine up to 2500, it cycles fine.
