Sorry for the delay, I'm am not getting the reply notification.The A/C system shouldnt have any effect on the engine performance.Usually when these engines stall out like that with no warning it's from a faulty cam sensor or occasionally the MAF if it runs very poorly for a bit before stalling.The best way to tell without any codes is to check for spark while cranking the engine, how handy are you?
