Hi there,

I have a 2003 Jeep Wrangler SE.

Now that it's getting hot, I've been running the AC, but it seems to want to stall the engine when I do. When the AC cycles, it'll put a load on the engine which will cause the RPM's to drop.

Sometimes tapping the gas will make it go away, sometimes it'll make it worse. Further, if I'm putting a load on the motor, like going up a hill, the AC will crap out completely, then come roaring back when I go back to normal use.

Today it stalled the motor and then wouldn't start again until I turned the AC off (real fun for the folks sitting behind me...)

Any ideas?

sounds like the AC clutch or Alternator is really weak

There's a small solenoid next to the throttle body that will kick up the idle when the A/C is engaged. Solenoids will seize up if there not used once in a while. It may be something that small shot of PB-Blaster or WD-40 will take care of.
It's also the cheaper and easier than replacing the compressor.
Good luck
