Well I have posted this problem before. But yesterday I turned my defrosters on and it started cutting out, like it does when you turn the ac on same thing, and it has a dtc 2274 02 sensor stuck on lean. But I am still trying to figure out why it does it with ac or defroster, it don't stall this happens idle only. This is how it started out last summer turning the ac on it started cutting out, ever since then it still cuts out sometimes it cuts out more but then again sometimes it will run smooth, but any time you turn on ac or defrosters it will cut out, like it is not accepting the additional load on motor, it had that misfire code but that don't show up any longer just the 2274 code.I was thing idle control valve but it would be stalling if that was the problem wouldn't it. Can I get a explanation for this.I have put this off to long now the only reason I haven't

Do you
