Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2005 PT cruiser non turbo 2.4 l engine automatic
transmission touring wagon

I have replaced my entire AC system includes compressor
actuator all three lines and has been properly sealed
vacuumed and recharged in has the right amount of oil it
lasted 2 days all sudden it's hot air I did notice when I was
going down the road and I stopped at a red light AC seems to
throw hot air out causing my vehicle to have rough idle and
shakingand it did start one time when I push the gas I had to
crank it back up when you turn the AC off when you're at a
red light idling the ref jerking does stop.I have to turn the AC
on when I'm going down the road it will blow fine cold I come
to a light I have to turn the AC off due when it turns green I
have to turn it back on again to keep it from stalling I also
replace the radiator fan and the low speed relay.I have ran out
of options on what's really going on with the AC system on
this car even the original parts that came with it from
Chrysler which I thought it was bad and it did the same thing
as doing with the new assembly I'm afraid if I take it back to
the AC shop they're just going to recharge me another $6 just
to look at it cuz the first time I've taken it to the shop I paid 60
bucks AC works fine then it died again but that was with the
old compressor but that was over 10 years oldI did notice the
wiring connector that was cut when I bought the vehicle had
but connectors on it I cut the connectors off and I put caps
on there cuz I went to a junkyard and purchased the actual
connector that goes on the cars harness and connected to
the radiator fans connector but the vehicle has no leaks in the
AC system what else can I try and do
