i would buy a simple obd2 diagnostic tool and reset the codes and leave it plugged in and see what code comes up first while your driving or if you dont have a obd2 scanner you can do it manually by taking out the ecm and counting the engine light it will blink fast then slow if it blinks 5 times slow and 3 times fast the code is 53 i would go with that rought

Sounds like a pretty crappy mechanic. The stalling is probably a bad compressor if it only happens when the ac is turned on. By cO2 sensor, you mean O2 sensor? You need to check the codes. Take it to advance auto and they will pull the codes for you for free. Let me know what you come up with.

Could also be issues with the IACV. The extra load the AC causes can also make a minimal IACV issue stall the engine. Have you checked the ECU codes? Im not positive whichh system the 95 runs, if its OBDII go to an autozone or similar car place and get it scanned. If its a OBDI then read about pulling the codes.You can do it at home.

No offense but you almost repeated the top that I wrote. I already told him to check the codes. Good point on the IACV though. He needs to pull the codes. Most likely get his answer when he does.

To check the codes simply drive the car to auto zone or advance auto and tell them your "check engine light" is on and that you would like them to check the codes. They will do it for free.
