You have a cooling problem with this vehicle, what happens is that as soon as the engine is running too hot the PCM starts by switching some of the cylinders off to try and control the temperature but if you ignore this the PCM will start cutting out two cylinders at a time and restricting the RPM to 3000rpm only, called limp mode. This trouble code will be registered in the PCM under the code P2199
If you still ignore this the PCM will switch the engine off completely to avoid serious damage to the engine
Have a look at the coolant level, Radiator leaks, Water pump, thermostat, blocked radiator
Hope this will help you

A/C compressor going bad ,maybe ! Had 03 focus same problem ,without the A/C on the car ran great . When turning on the A/C the PCM - engine computer is suppose to raise the vehicle idle so it doesn't stall . How does your car run without the A/C on .

03 windstar cuts out when a/c is turned on


hi

2003 Ford Windstar-this may the idleing amount is too much so which may makes it to idle rough. that means too much of fuel going inside the engine.

Engine stalls- this is because the when the car is off and when AC is on the AC runs in battery. When you try starting the car the starter motor takes power from the battery. it doesnt have enough battery power t o starts thats why it stalls.
