I noticed the other day that when I have the A/C on and I am accelerating (upshifting with Man. Trans.), the engine seems to either (1) hesitate (misfire) or (2) The A/C Compressor seems to toggle on and off. The acceleration is not smooth.

It feels like the engine is stuttering.

I believe that it might be (2) above.

I have a 2000 with 2.5L V6 with MTX.

I do not believe it is a WOT condition since I never floor-it when I drive.

Any ideas or experiences with this?

The dealer could not duplicate this situation.

Sorry folks. I've had mine in to three different dealers and have been told that this is normal operation for the Cougar with the AC on (no codes). The hesitation (miss) is maddening but apparently within normal limits. Quality is Job 1???
