My 2001 Taurus runs great and A/C is very cold. Now that it is spring I am beginning to use the A/C. The engine sometimes will stall when in gear but stopped at a red light. Only stalls when at idle and in gear. It does not seem like idle is increasing when a/c cycles and comes on and off. No other problems. Just occassional stalling.I was told it might be tps sensor but that does not sound right to me. Also, there is an a/c cycle swith but I doubt that is the problem since it blows very cold. Help !

Thanks,
Craig
