How long have you had this problem? few months
Automatic transmission
Sometimes when I start my car, I drive a few seconds and all is normal, but then in a few more seconds the car will slow down a lot and very quickly and it feels as though the car is going to stop completely even though my foot is pressing down normally on the accelerator. In a few seconds' time the car picks up normal speed and I'm off as normal. I'm worried that this will happen in the middle of traffic as I'm leaving a parking lot and entering the road with cars coming up very fast behind me. This has happened in the last ~ 8 months on about 6 occasions.

but the check engine light keep coming back what could it be?
What happens when the struts and shocks wear out (how does it affect the car over all?)
Mechanic says I need to replace shock/strut and need a stabilizer bar kit. Total cost for job is about $900. My understanding is that there are two(?) shock and struts (4 in total). Will they have to replace all 4 at one time or could it be they meant one shock, one strut (the estimate looks like they are charging for one of each rather than both for back and front).
Problems when there is too much motor oil in the engine?
Replaced fuses relays tested the fuel pump there's no power coming from the wire harnesse to the pump what could it be?
But sounds like batt is dying,I needed gas and someone out gas in from gas can 2 min later if that car ran rough and died will not start and killed my batt. What do I check or do ?
I have been having this oil light problem for about 3 months. The car is running smoothly and very well. Starts quickly, have power and it doesn't stall.
The problem is the oil light is on.
The oil sensor switch was replaced but oil light still on. A local mechanic checked with a scanner and said that indicated a misfire, and may be the spark plugs and/or a coil or fuel injector need to be replaced. However, the engine is not vibrating or showing any sign of having any malfunction. Oil is new and to the right level. The car has 71000 miles. Don't know whom to trust for the repairs and how much would it cost. So far, local mechanics can't give me a fairly accurate estimate. What do you think?
When I apply a little pressure on brake pedal the raffling stops
