Exclamation A/C pissing Me off... + One minor problem...

I don't know if this is considered normal, but when my A/C "clicks" on/off, I notice a huge performance difference. I could be driving down the freeway at like 70 and it will click, then it literally feels like I just took my foot off the accelerator. Really irritating when you're trying to drove with the A/C And your car randomly jerks like that.

Another example: I was driving up a hill yesterday in 3rd, ~2,500 RPM's, good constant acceleratoin. Then bam, my A/C "clicked" and I had tofloor it just to accelerate. Did the gas pedal cable mod btw.

So yeah, it's irritating. If anyone can give me some advice, please post away!

Also, I'm idling around ~750RPMs, but sometimes on cold days I'll idle ~900. Regardless, I have an uneven idle, like the engine is stumbling a little, just enough to give the truck a random shake when the RPMs dip. I can drop the RPMs below 500 when I max out the steering or press the brakes hard.

I don't know much about engines, but my buddies 05 ranger (3.0 I think, and auto) doesn't have these issues. I have an 03 Edge 2wd 5spd, 3.0.

Anyways thanks for reading my (somewhat) lengthy post
