Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You mentioned the a/c working normally while driving so I'm assuming that it works fine at higher speeds and warms up when coming to a stop, and the engine either drags down and springs back up repeatedly, or is dying. If this is the case it's because the high speed cooling fan isn't running to bring high side pressure down. This will cause the vent temp to warm up and it will put a large load on the engine which can cause an idle undershoot and in some cases can cause the engine to die.
