Unhappy 380SE dies when car is idling or coming to a stop when the a/c is on.

I have a 1985 380 SE that is having a few struggles right now. Please help. If the car is idling and I turn the a/c on then the car dies. Also, when coming to a stop or slowing down when the a/c is on, the car will die.

On a few occasions, it has died while slowing down when the a/c is not on.

I bought the car about 6 months ago and from previous receipts I can see that a mechanic told the previous owner that the compression needs to be evened out and that there is a 40psi variation. HELP!!!!! What does this mean and is it my problem.

please help soon,

P.s. I have a broken spark plug wire also
