Same happened to me. I went into a repair shop and they told me it was the air conditioner compressor. I was travelling at the time and it was expensive, so I told them to unplug the AC Compressor until I got home. The Smell and hesitation of the van stopped after they unplugged it. This is how I knew they were correct for the analysis.
