Just shuts down on me...

Hey ya'll,

I got a 94 325 Convertible and when I have the A/C on and I'm pulling away from a stand still she just shuts down on me.

No problem at all when I'm already moving or sitting still but when I try accelerating from a stand still she makes these weird sounds (like she out of gas or something) and shuts down.

Only happens when I have the A/C on.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Have you had the A/C compressor checked?

Yeah, had it checked recently and it was fine. A friend of mine thinks it might be the spark plugs but I don't know.

Thanks for the reply

Maybe the electrical system needs a look. I don't think it's the spark plugs, but maybe with the A/C is on, there's an electric drain that cuts power to the ignition.
