asked by on

Today i noticed that when my a/c compressor was kicking off and on and my engine died in the process. I noticed a week ago that my engine almost died. I got home today and opened my hood with the a/c on and the compressor wasnt running. I started my car a couple times with the a/c on and the comptessor would come on for a second and go back off and not come on again.

My car has 3300 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
