I have a 2008 Chrysler 300. It runs great but sometimes the engine cuts off while idling when AC is on. What could be the problem?

fast idle a/c selenoid not functioning correctly. Should raise the idle speed when a/c is on. Replace or adjust it.

El station wagon keeps cutting out

There may be an issue with the control module in the engine compartment. Or maybe you could adjust your idle speed on the throttle body.. Dose it cut out while driving or while idleing

I have a 1996 windstar, and when I select heat or AC to my face/feet, or defrost, my engine ramps up to 4rpm's, but if I select the face or feet only my engine remains normal. What's the problem?

Could be a problem with the idle air control valve, or something electrical.
When you command the defrost or ac on, the compressor is supposed to kick on along with the radiator fan. The computer bumps up the idle to recover from the extra load on the engine. If the compressor does not work, the extra RPM is not needed.
But the RPM should only go up about 2 or 300 above normal speed, even if the compressor is not working. So if it is going up to 4000 instead of say 1000 something is going on with the idle air control.

What's your problem?I have a 2000 Lincoln LS that runs great when driving but as soon as I stop and sit a minute it cuts off. I have noticed the car start stalling a little before it cuts off. Cou

Generally speaking, the common reasons for stalling are a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed into the intake thru the throttle body.
Those two issues would be checked first.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

sounds like the idle control valve is sticking. it is located at the throttlebody at the air inlet. try tapping on it and see if the idle goes up

Engine starts but it run rough

do a pressure test on the fuel pump. if that tests ok then check your sensors. is it shooting a code (service engine light)? Oxygen sensor at back of cat. converter, crank shaft sensor or throttle position sensor. Unfortunately sensors are hard to trace. These are the suggestions I recd. for my bravada. it idles great but dies about every 1000 feet or so while driving. cut it off and re-crank and go another 1000-2000 ft. and do it again, will start running rough until you kill the ignition and restart the truck. pretty sure mine is a weak fuel pump.
