    Make sure the compressor is secure, after that I would guess the air conditioning load on the engine is causing a misfire or the idle air control motor is not properly adjusting the idle speed. It's hard to guess without being able to experience the problem and do some basic diagnostic tests.

    Do you think the coil would be another factor
