Default Stalling probs

Engine runs rough and even stalls when i turn on the ac, in a slow sharp turn like backing or pulling into a parking spot, and sitting still with the car in gear and with the brakes applied like at a light or stop sign. It doesnt do it with the heat on so its not the blower motor. I have replaced the battery,plugs and wires and the coil pack.Im starting to suspect the compressor, but would like to know before investing that kind of money. Any ideas? thanks

Check the radiator fan. I've seen people with your same symptoms because of a bad fan.
