Car will not stay started

Asked by Aug 17, 2015 at 03:11 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Malibu LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Not sure what to do...Car will start but as soon as you turn on the AC the car will shut off
and it takes a few minutes before it will turn over to stay on again. I have changed out the
spark plugs, starter altenator and battery all in a matter of one week time...do any one
have any clue on what can possibly be wrong?

Is this even after turning off the A.C that the vehicle takes a few minutes to restart again.

Is there a check engine light on ? Because it sounds like it is idling to low and when you turn on A/C it just shuts off. Ok let's try some maintenance things first check air filter and clean throttle body replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while add Lucas Fuel Injector Cleaner to gas tank.
