SOURCE: car cutting out when idleing
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

your engine idle not keeping up with the demand when you have the air on.Either have you engine properly tuned up,or turn up the throttle idle to about 750/850 RPM or a little higher if needed.Keep in mind if you have to go through this you need something fixed to make the engine run properly with the A/C on.

1- There are 2 fan systems in your car. One is a fan clutch. the other is electric fan. The electric fan is still working, but the fan clutch is not. Replace the fan clutch will take care of this problem. 2- When you put flat down on accelerator the car starts since at this position the throttle body open all the way making a correct air: fuel ratio of 14.6 :1. When you release the accelerator,the throttle body has to go back to it preset position and at this position it didn't make a correct air: fuel ratio of 14.6 causing the engine die instantly. This means your throttle body needs cleaned. There is a vacuum thermal valve at the top engine block to answer your question. It can be easily identified by looking at 2 vacuum hoses from this valve running down to the throttle body.
