Question about Mazda 626
I'm not familiar with those cars, however I do have some ideas. I assume it's an electronically controlled transmission? If so the best probability is either a bad connection or damage to one of the wires, or a fault in the control unit. The reason I think this is it sounds like the bands are not disengaging from the wheels as they should. It could also be just mechanical, but probably the same reason. If it will let you shift into neutral when approaching a full stop (do this WITHOUT depressing the shift button, otherwise you could end up in reverse or park!) that might be at least a way to live with it for a while. I drop it into neutral all the time from drive, but not all cars will let you. The first thing I'd do though is check all the wires and most of all plugs that lead to the ECU or transmission. One last thing, I'm assuming it chokes down when you reach a full stop only? If it randomly chokes with a light brake application and you're still rolling, that points to something wrong with the engine electrical systems more than the trans. Good luck

it is either the idle control valve or the egr valve sticking.just say that you have just come off of the interstate and had to stop suddenly,if the engine starts acting like it is going to die or just dies it is most likely the egr valve. good luck let me know if i can help in any other way

This can be from a number of problems. You have wear tabs, sometimes called "screech tabs" and they are suppose to make noise when the brake pads are thin. This will happen when the caliper shifts in a turn or the brakes are applied.
Next, the wheel bearings will definitely whine when they are dry or worn out. The application of the brakes makes the bearing shift slightly and this can temporarily stop the noise. The weight shift can be enough to relieve the worn part in a turn by changing the angle of the wheel in a turn. But a brake caliper can also rock in its mounts during a turn and pull away from where it was rubbing.
This repair requires hands-on inspection of the parts to sort the good from the bad. All of these parts are in the same area.
I hope my solution helps you.
