    as soon as the engine starts the revs drop very low and sometimes stalls. it will then idle ok (after a restart if it stalled)
    engine seems to run ok otherwise although im not sure it is idling up when the aircon is on

    You could check the throttle body cable and see if it's slack. From memory, the AC drops the revs down when turned on which could lead to stalling if the throttle cable is slack.
