    Jeep overheats when A/C is on!

    At highway speeds (55mph +) with the A/C on my 08 JK Sahara keeps overheating. Coolant temp normally runs at 206 degrees and then the fan will kick on in high speed bringing it back down to around 194. While driving faster than 55mph the coolant temp will keep rising however, going up to the 230ís if I donít slow down and turn off the A/C. Pretty sure it will keep rising but obviously Iím not trying to find out so I always have to slow down and shut of the A/C. I can manage driving at 60-65 with the windows down and keep a comfortable coolant temp, but Iíd like to solve this issue. Any suggestions??

    My guess is your A/C compressor is bad is putting a drag on the engine.
