Ok thank you. Have you had the A/C serviced recently?
Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I haven't had any maintenance done to the A/C
Chevy Mechanic: John M.,
 replied 1 year ago
A common problem with Chevys is that when the A/C compressor gets older the bearings wear out and when the compressor engages it creates too much drag for the engine to handle at idle or low rpms and therefore stalls the engine

That's the same thing I was thinking. I actually did have to swap out a compressor because I noticed a leak right after I bought the vehicleWould the IAC cause any issues?
Chevy Mechanic: John M.,
 replied 1 year ago
Well first I would suggest taking it in and have a shop just check the Freon level and make sure it’s at the proper level. If it is it’s most likely time for an A/C compressor replacementNo the IAC won’t affect this at all

Sounds good. That would also explain the loss of throttle.
Chevy Mechanic: John M.,
 replied 1 year ago
it definitely would. Does it make any weird sounds?

Nothing out of the ordinary. Just the fan engaging.
Chevy Mechanic: John M.,
 replied 1 year ago
Ok, then yeah in my opinion, it’s probably time for a new compressor.

Sounds good. I'll check to see if there's enough refrigerant and go from there. I appreciate the help
