The car runs just fine, the engine sound good up until the heater or air conditioner is turned on. After turning the heater or air conditioner on there is a loud squeeking sound coming from the engine and after a few seconds the engine stalls, and by the way the heater and air condiitioner seem to work fine
The car will only die if you are not reving the engine. What could the problem be.

The newer Fords run the A/C compressor for all settings to the right of the off position on the knob (if you have manual heating/cooling controls). It runs the A/C compressor for all but the floor mode. The noise you are hearing is most likely the compressor locked up. I have seen engines stall due to this. Check this first and reply back with your findings.
