When weather is hot and we run the air conditioner the car surges at a stop and misses when driving. The cooling fan then kicks in and runs wide open. The fan turns off when I turn the key off. I can wait for a period of time and it will run ok for a while.

Check to see if htere are any engine scan codes. Check your fule pressure and check for a vacuum leak. You can also check for bad plugs or plug wires.
