      If it's misfires on all cylinders you do not have an issue with the plugs or coils. More likely a vacuum leak causing a lean condition. Or could possibly be carbon buildup on the intake valves.

      Sounds like a bad AC Compressor Control Solenoid Valve. Google it and see if your symptoms match. It's a $20.00 part and fairly easy to replace.
