    nevermind, I replaced the coil and plug wires, reset the computer, and it runs like a brand new car. I should be able to give myself a fixya rating for this!

SOURCE: when a/c is on car hesitates and sometimes cuts

Check the voltage on battery with a volt meter with car running. Voltage should be between 14-15 volts. If not then the pcm on car is causing the problem. The pcm (power control module is regulating the voltage from the alternator and you will need to carry it to a shop to see if the pcm can be reset or replaced. If the voltage is correct then the battery is at fault and you will need to replace the battery. Any battery that is a least 4 years old should be replaced and would not hold a charge. Hope this will help you.
