Lately when I turn on the defrost and the ac compressor kicks in the car idles rough. If I turn it off it idles smooth. It also the past few days feels like it wants to stall at idle with defrost on and if I give it a bit of gas then its okay. I've replaced the idle air control valve and cleaned the tb plate.

A rough idle may be caused by many different things such as low fuel pressure, low voltage to the fuel injectors, dirty fuel injectors, a vacuum leak, a faulty Oxygen sensor or a dirty or failing idle air control valve. Any of these possibilities relate to fuel delivery issues that will disrupt the normally balanced air/fuel mixture that would otherwise allow the motor to run smoothly. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic cometo your location to diagnose your rough idle problem.
