If engine cuts off while accelerating then it is not the idling system that is at fault and neither should it be the compressor.
If it is a fault with the compressor, the engine would cut off when the compressor clutch engages. Excessive freon in system would normally cause the compressor to cycle on and off intermittently and you can confirm if it is the cause with a low and high pressure reading.
Is the Check Engine Lamp indicating?
Does problem occur if the A/C is not used?
Any performance issues and erratic idling when A/C is not turned on?
Do you have any difficult starting issues?
