AC stops engine on 2001 Ford Escort

Hi,
every time I use the AC my car starts shaking and turns off, it will start right back up and work fine as long as te AC is turned off. any ideas?

You may have an A/C Compressor that is seizing up, but it could be something related to the engine management system too. The best thing to do is have it checked out by a shop. You can find one here: http://repairpal.com/directory
your car probably has a vacuum leak and your ac is taking to much power to keep it running
