If all you installed was a compressor you need to install new filter and flush the system and replace the ex valve as well. the low press. switch is the therm. for the system sound like it bad as well.

When i drive it and i turn the AC the car starts


I beleive you need a new A/C Compressor because the one you have is Locked Up and when the Compressor Clutch kiks in, it freezes up and tries to keep the belt from turning (that's why the jumping) until it shuts the engine off.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post.

How do you recharge the AC in a 2004 Dodge Stratus? Is that usually the problem when it is nt blowing cold air?

Yes. You can get a recharge kit at your local parts store. You can get cans of freon with hose attached. You will need to start the car and turn the ac on full blast. If you follow the ac hoses you should find two caps that cover valves. 1 is high pressure, the other is low pressure. Take the cap off the low pressure (it is smaller). Test to see if the hose end will attach to the plug. If so, that is the one. MAKE sure that the compressor clutch is kicking in and out-you should be able to see and hear it. This is the front part of the compressor where the belt turns. If low on freon it will be doing it fairly fast. Shake the can real good before you start. Twist the "t" handle down to pierce the top of the freon can. Then back it out. Hold the can upside down and keep shaking ocassionally.The can should start getting cold in your hand-that slows the freon is going out. and the compressor should run for longer periods. You may need more that 1 can, maybe not. You may want to get the can that has oil charge and stop leak/leak detector in it as well.
