Your most likely have an electrical problem behind the dash, but to be safe I would suggest going to a mechanic and have him/her scan the computer for any error codes, that will give you your definite answer. Once a code has been found, your fixing will have a direction.

    You are probably out of freon. You can buy a freon tester at most hardware stores, usually they also come with instructions.

    Keep in mind alot of vehicles tend to get a freon leak over their life time so if it is empty you can refill it with a freon refill kit, but if it empties itself again in a very short time, it would be smart just to try and live without A/C.

03 Dodge Stratus check engine light is on and car idles rough

I dont think you need a engine rebuild. Have him test the ignition system, basic tune up, also have him check the fuel pressure when cold and hot compare them.

I have a 96 audi a4 quattro

Just a suggestion but my guess would be the engine control module. Usually when they heat up, the engine shuts down and when they cool off it works again, until it heats up again, then poof. I sincerely hope that I helped. Best wishes.
