A/C systems don't vapor lock, sounds like somehappen with the either the engine management control or you did indeed experance a fuel vapor lock, make sure you are running top tier fuels and the fuel lines should be checked to make sure they away from or shielded from any heat sources. There are some vehicles that need additional shielding if they are ran in hotter climates to help elemanate fuel vapor locking.
