2002 Montero, cuts out at idle when AC comes on. 90,000, 6

Customer Question

2002 Montero, cuts out at idle when AC comes on.
JA: How many miles are on the car? What size is the engine?
Customer: 90,000, 6 cyl I think. just had the timing belt replaced last year.
JA: Are you fixing your Montero yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No, the local mech replaced the EGR valve as a possible fix, but that didn't change anything. I'm wondering if there is a step-up control for when the AC comes on.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

If you apply throttle to raise the rpm to 1000, can you prevent it from stalling?

Are you behind on any maintenance?

A dirty MAF sensor and throttle body, and or a faulty IAC valve on the throttle body are the leading causes for this concern.
