Correct.
Captain Obvious says, "since the code said 'A/C relay'..... start there".

Oxygen sensor codes and Evap codes have absolutely nothing to do with the operation of the A/C.

rocking back and forth could easily be one side spinning until it catches traction again. Yeah, you said someone watched you. But that doesn't mean jack sh-it when it comes to a little slippage. ...

before you just throw parts at it, CHECK WHAT POPPED FIRST. You need to fill it back up with coolant. Look for leaks. If none are seen, start the car and let it run until you do see it leak. Your...

I was thinking this all along. Finally someone noticed.

Same weight, and even if close to same power.... this is the game changer. That V6 will be dragging it's ass.

Every vehicle is set up this way to help prevent the stupid people from going to far before running out of gas.

Warranties are for manufacturing defects. Debris in the sensor is not a defect.
Warranties, on cars anyway, are for quite a long period of time in comparison to what they used to be. And they...

Im gonna go with it being an exhaust leak. Just because it changes after it warms up. This could easily be parts expanding due to heat and sealing up better than when cold. Ticking sound will come...

This noise type, without hearing it firsthand, could be the alternator, belt pulley, or P/S pump.

Now that's its been over a couple hundred miles, it has only done it once. So changing the idle values obviously has an effect on the stalling issue. I will let it go as it is for now, to see if...

Pump replacement.

Changing fluid wont change anything. It would be just like changing engine oil to try to fix a rod knock.

Hearing it at low speed, or standstill is when the greatest strain...

Got my car back Sat morning. The idle table of the tune got changed. Raised the idle number to 2.3. I plan on driving it every day this week to see if the problem remains or has disappeared.

I jumped the gun. Higher heat range number makes it a "colder" plug.

So another clue is the whining noise. An alternator or belt pulley bearing could easily make that noise.
And we know an alternator can kick up some goofy codes.
Also check the PS fluid level.
