1999 Mazda Protege 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 220000 miles

ive been having a few problems with my car. Firstly when I run my air conditioner while driving it makes the car cut out and bogg down. Also when im driving and I let off the accelerator, it jerks real hard, and sometimes when I start to take off from a stop it boggs down. What could it be?

Do you
have the same problem?

Lack of acceleration, chugging, hesitating, bogging, misfiring etc. Could be caused by one of the following below:

Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Knock sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
False air leakage.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note:If it doesn't apply disregard it.
