Does the engine idle OK if the a/c is off? Perhaps the idle air control motor is not operating correctly when the air conditioning is on and not raising the idle speed to compensate for the additional load on the engine.Another possibility is check the compressor mounting bolts to the engine block or mounting brackets to make sure none of them are missing or have worked loose.
