    Have no cure for stalkiling but keep in mind that improper fuel ratio or poor spark will often be insufficient to keep fire lit under engine load.

A good tune up and a good cleaning of the throttle body and idle air control valve will fix this issue. Keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have.

The A/C compressor take sup to 10 hp from engine via the pulley system. If the car never has actually stalled from activating the A/C no action should be taken, most newer vehicles has idle compensation sensors that activate when the A/C is turned on if the vehicle stalls bring it to auto zone to check for stored trouble codes the perform the test for free.

As soon as I turn my AC on the motor runs rough and when I turn it off it runs on 8 cylinders perfectly fine, I Check the harness for opens or a short to ground I still haven't found the fan relay


What is year--make--model?
How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free. I always check for codes, don't care if the cel is on or not.
Some makes and models, if you turn on the ac, the pcm will try to up the idle, so as not to cause idle issues.
Clean the throttle body, check and clean idle air system, see if it helps?

DO A LITTLE TUNE UP.CHANGE FUEL FILTER * AIR FILTER * SPARK PLUG * WIRES *CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID.MOST TIME YOU RUN AC IN CAR YOUR ENGINE HAS TO BE WELL TUNED.BECAUSE THE AC WILL TAKE SOME POWER FROM ENGINE.

My 1995 Jetta is running fine without the ac on. After I turn the ac on it may drive fine for a while then all of a sudden it loses alot of power and spits and sputters. What could be the problem. Thanks


make sure your plugs and wires are in good condition.also fuel and air filter.the engine has to be well tuned up.because air conditioner compressor put a little load on engine.if engine is not well tuned.the AC will pull it down.cause it to lose power and run rough.

Idles rough when ac is off when turned on idles fine sounds like a bad miss


when the ac compressor starts the diesel flow will be reduced and so the pick up will be reduced so that the car will be tuned

My Ford ranger does this too. It's been a while since I read on this but if I'm not mistaken I think this is normal.
