Sounds like either a electrical issue or the compressor is froze up.

Re: Engine cutting off

My car misses when I turn my A/C on due to the compressor being froze up so I dont know if that alone would cause it to completely shut down.

Re: Engine cutting off

It could be in need of a tune up and the compressor being frozen

Re: Engine cutting off

No check engine light on it tends to cut off when you come to a stop while driving. Its my buddies car i looked under the hood and the compressor is fine it has over 100k miles on it and looks like its never had a tune up so i told him to go get a full tune up and see if that helps. Thanks for the help

Re: Engine cutting off

If it does it at idle i would suspect a vacuum line
