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

SOURCE: whining noise in car stops when breaking or turning

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.

My boy has a 1993 mazda protege when he puts in drive engines stalls but not in rev.

There are several things that can cause this type of problem. The most common two problems are vacuum leaks, and a bad IAC (idle air control) I will tell you right up front there are several different names for the IAC, and this always causes confusion. It is basically a little servo motor that is controlled by the vehicles computer. It's job is to control the idle, and not let the engine die as it idles. If your vehicle has vacuum leaks on the intake manifold, or any of the vacuum lines then the IAC cant do its job, and the engine will die at an idle. The best way to proceed is to check for vacuum leaks with a can of WD40 run the engine and get someone to sit in the car and keep the engine running at the lowers steady speed you can keep it running at. Then spray the WD40 all around the intake manifold and vacuum lines. If you hit a vacuum leak the engine will speed up for a second or two. This method will allow you to find almost impossible to find vacuum leaks. If there are no apparent vacuum leaks then it it pretty safe to assume the IAC is the problem. Sometimes they are stuck, and if you spray them with carb cleaner you can free them up where they will work, but most of the time they just need to be replaced.

Mazda tribute 2002 stalling

1. will it stay running if you foot is sligtly on the gas.
if so common problem it the IAC valve located on top of the throttle body. it controls ait into the engine when throttle is closed.
2. do you hear loud fog horn like sound or hissing. this could indicate a vaccum leak.
3. are there any performance problems while driving.

my best guess would be the IAC (idle air control) valve

Why does the pontiac sunfire 1998 engine shut off when you break

Sound like you have an IAC problem. The IAC is mounted to your throttle body and it is what raises engine rpm.
