So im having an issue with my 2002 escalade. It started last summer but never happened once during thw winter until l this week when i started using the AC again. Basically Randomly without warning the truck will start to bog down idle at abour 3-400 rpms and then die. It usually happens at stop lights or if i leave it running and run in the gas station ect. Sometimes though it will die even driving highway speeds. When it happens i have to pull over wait a few minutes and then it starts back up again.

Anyone have any ideas? I have a 2400 mile round trip to miami a week from now and need to figure this out!!

Here are some possible ideas i have. AC is overcharged? Bad Compressor? Throttle body needs cleaning?

They deleted my other post but I said to clean throttle body & air intake. Good idea to change fuel filter I forgot 03 had them. Does it have trouble starting ? More time?
If the fuel filter is new and you think it has water in it I would take off the lines and dump it out. Probably won't do anything. Do you have a check engine light? How about the air filter did you ever change that? Most likely not the problem either. Does it happen while your on the parkway or stopped at a red light
