Try changing the air filter and fuel filter. Perform an OBDII scan before any other repairs, to avoid buying parts you don't need

2010 mustang air conditioner blowing warm air and hesitating


Very strange.
Usually the ac compressor cuts off if the computer detects a major problem with the engine such as a power loss on more than one cylinder.
And if that happens the computer should store trouble codes for the issues.
Is the check engine light staying on ? Will the ac work if the engine idles ?

I have a 1997 Saturn LS and it shakes while idling in a stop light. When I accelarate it hesitates to go over 30 MPH.


That shake is probably due to a bad cylinder. This means you are missing either one of the three...
no spark
no fuel at the cylinder (Bad injector)
No compression
You need to test these to know.

My ford escort hesitates and shakes like its about to stall whenever I come to a stop or right before I come to a stop. Is it the fuel line?


depends on which engine you have
seen lots of CMP issues and/or variable cam gear issues (assuming you have the ZTEC engine)

doubtful its fuel lines but could be the fuel filter or the IAC (idle air control motor)

is the check engine light on?

When it rains, my 2004 dodge durango hesitates and shakes when coming to a stop, engine light comes on. after it dries out, runs fine and engine light turns off, dealer cannot fine the issue


I had the same problem. Same year, too. 2004 4.7L Durango. Took it to a Dodge Dealer in Oak Lawn, IL. Problem was when it rained out water got into the engine from the hood by the windshield wipers. The spark plugs got all wet causing the engine to hesitate and shake. I had to have a water dam installed and never had anymore problems. Hope this helps you out.
