Sounds to me you got a charge fault with either alternator or battery and when under load seems to take all the power from vital components to keep the car running. what car are we talking about here please .?

SOURCE: car is stalling when car

Go to AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts - they will do a check-engine scan for any car that is model year 96 or newer for free. They'll give you the codes. Get the codes and post them up as a reply here, and we can figure out what's wrong. I'm betting you're throwing some sort of misfire code, so I'd think your problems would be among coil, spark plug, plug wire, distributor, or possibly engine timing. Get your codes and post them and we can narrow it down further from there.

SOURCE: Cruise control not working properly

Check the brake switch below the brake pedal. It may think the brake is being pressed if that switch is not working properly. Also check for vacuum hose leak or damage in the same area.

While driving my 2011 lancer the steering wheel and brakes locked


Was the steering wheel locked, or just stiff to turn?
I imagine what may have happened is that the engine stalled while on the move. This would effectively kill vacuum brake assistance, and stop the power steering pump at the same time, causing very heavy steering.
You will need to check the condition of your engine components if this was the case. You can start by checking the condition of the following:

1) Spark plugs, leads and coil(s)
2) Air filter
3) Fuel filter
4) Idle control valve

My 1996 nissan sentra runs good but when i come to a stop and turn steering wheel the idle drops and stalls a little , almost shuts down . Is there a quick solution ?


sounds like your power steering idle up switch is not working. Rpms should go up when you used your steering. Rhere is a switch built into the power steering system to raise rpms when you are turning steering wheel. It looks like it has a problem.

My 99 subaru legacy 2.5 feels like its going to stall when im turning at slow speeds like about to park.


if you are turning the wheel all the way until it stops then you are putting the steering pump in a bind cuasing the engine to slow down more causing the engine to stall ,,, recommend you turn the steering wheel all the way you are going until the wheel stops and then back the other way a little bit to stop this binding,, shoulsd stop your problem
