Asked by Aug 29, 2010 at 03:39 PM about the 2001 Mazda MX-5 Miata SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently purchased a 2001 Miata special edition (BRG) 6 speed. It has 247xxx miles on the odometer. The problem i'm having when i'm driving my Miata with the A/C on , wether on surface roads or freeway  the engine will start sputter then completly dies. on other occasions while driving on freeway with A/C on, it will start to sputter again, only this time i will turn off A/C and coast until it recovers and it will keep running fine with A/C off. ??????   Is there any body with same or similar problem that may help me solve this problem.

My guess is that your AC compressor has failed, and is binding, sucking the power out of your engine. HTH Earl '04 MX-5
