OK, so I had my A/C off my car for about 6 months while i decided how to fix my radiator support and now that the support is fixed, I re-installed it and used the R-134a conversion kit. It cooled fine for a day and then while driving it the next day, everytime i would push in the clutch and let it go back to idle it would damn near die 2 or 3 times before it caught back up. It also pulls alot more out of the motor than it used to. What could it be?

yeah i double and triple checked the gauge and it was in the middle of the filled zone...

when driving in 1st and 2nd gear you can feel the compressor kicking on and off..it jerks the car

agreed, i have no clue what you mean by middle of the fill zone either, hook some manifold guages up to it, and tell us what the low side and high side pressures are...

40psi suction pressure is alright.. we still need to know the head pressure.

if possible measure the suction line temperature, the discharge line temperature after the condenser along with the temperature drop across the evaporator coil.

Those things just make it easier to figure out what's wrong.
