Help!

My 1.6S (1999) has a noticeable poor running problem. engine idling is erratic with the rev counter swinging all over the place except when I switch on the air con. The problem occasionally results in the engine dying as I stop at a junction. It restarts normally. There is not a problem once the engine goes over 1,000 rpm. Can anybody tell me what the likely source of this problem is?

Thanks,
Justin

I would bet on you Mass Air Flow sensor. That is what messed up on my Nissan with the exact same results.
