When I put the AC on, the engine sounds almost like a deisel when accelerating... What causes that? I want it to stop!

If the noise is only when the a/c is on, then there's a good chance your a/c compressor or clutch is bad.

That means your engine is running too lean (not getting enough fuel in the mix) use higher octane gas when you know your going to run the a/c.
