another thing i remember too, the A/C makes this problem 10 times worse.

well, i had a look at it today. as it turns out, this is the AC cycling, but i never noticed this before though. maybe something is wrong with it, as the AC is beginning to not cut it as well anymore. man, i wish this car would hurry up and die
