It is more than likely because when you use yoru A/C, it puts more of aload on the motor, thus reducing your takeoff and acceleration. If the this is the only thing you are noticing, then i wouldnt worry about it. If there are other issues, please let us know what they are and i will try to advise, thank you.

Engine power problem


Yes, the open circuit can indeed cause your loss of power and the appearance of running rich.

Likely caused by replacing the exhaust manifold. Check wires to injectors.

When the Air conditioner is turned on, the check engine light will come on dashboard. If the Air conditioner is turned off the light goes off also.


check your level of trans fluid if low fill then check air hole on top of trans and make sure it is unblocked...if they get blocked it will cause your trans to overflow your fluid causing loss and overheating you fluid causing light to come on...the air hole is usually a rubber or plastic tube sticking up at least 8 inches from the top of the trans

The gears on my car are not changing, could it be the transmision or the airflow meter?


automatic.?
first learn now to tell, if the engine lacks power ,or the tranny is slipping
that is easy.
1: increase speed, does RPM(tachometer) rise faster (independant) of road speed. (that is called, trans slip.)
2: the trans dont slip. so the engine rpms stay low (gears work) and
the engine has no power.
if the engine has no power, fix engine.

The trans is very complex. if it messes up post that and what it does
under all driving and gear selecton modes, and hills and flat ground.
why pick the air flow meter, MAF , the most expensive part of EFI sensors. why guess there is a very simple test for the MAF, just ask.
its all in the FSM or here.

Engine dies at stop lights when air conditioning is in use


Lets use common sense on the Trans Flushing

Old Fluid out --- New Fluid in---WOULD THAT DO ANYTHING
TO CORRECT ANY PROBLEM------NO

Trans & Power Steering Fluids-- are done every 3 years
in my world
They are called Preventative Maintenance,just like spark plugs,
gas & air filters,nothing else,fixes nothing

Trans fluid breaks down over time from heat & then your
clutches burn up & your trans fails,no other reason to change
the fluid

If the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid is bad & doesn't
release when you apply the brake,then it is like slowing down
with a standard shift car & not putting in the clutch when you
come to a stop

You need to ask more questions & understand what your
told or stay in the conversation & take it into the service bay
& not deal with a service writer who doesn't work on the
product.

My 2000 rodeo manual trans. had a loss of power


This sounds like a restricted exhaust system, may have a clogged cat-converter,i would start by checking the exhaust system,and also check the engine for loose vacuum hoses

1996 ford f150 5.0 Runs fine then dies when radio is on


i think a trip to the local ford dealer is in order here, you won't get theis solved on the free forum, have been a Ford dealer tech for 25 years and have never heard of such a thing. all the lights u mention they come on because the engine has stalled, this goes for the loss of power steering as well..

Looses power /slips going up a hill.


This is a hard question to answer without more information. If the vehicle has a sensation of slipping it is usally the automatic transmission that is at fault and it probably has to be rebuilt. The sensation of power loss could be from the slipping transmission. Try manually downshifting the trans. to a lower gear when going up a hill and see what happens. That can tell you if the problem is the trans, or the engine,
