same as described except i lose my brakes when the car is running badly my break pedal is so hard to push i almost gotta stand on it to stop. and it dies when i stop at lights or slow way down to turn or wait on traffic,. also transmission shifts very very hard like. ..
Just replaced my oil pressure sensor and the day after I started having problems where my engine would studder sometimes while idling and sometiems shut off while slowing down or turning. I think one of my vacuum tubes is cracked so this would be the cause I'm assuming
1999 cavalier stalls when coming to a stop.
used carb cleaner to spray onto the vacuum hoses. Replaced affected hose.
