The one thing I found out about the '89 Reliant is that the AFTERMARKET motor mounts do not last on these vehicles. I finally had to bite the bullet and pay for the Chrysler OEM motor mounts, which are naturally more expensive, but I never had any shaking problems again. Peace, Chief

Check the EGR valve, it may be leaking exhaust gas into the intake track at idle.

    Yes, You can remove it. Check with your auto part store for a EGR block plate, If it's not availble,you can fabicate one from 1/4" thick piece of steel and wide enough to cover the hole. Use the egr as pattern for the plate. Remember use a new gasket or you will have vacuum and exhaust leak. Also you need to cap the vacuum line that attach to the egr. I've done this to two of my cars , have had not problems do this.

When putting on brakes, car makes a boom boom noise and shakes. The wheels on the front move if you shake them back and fourth. Is that my ball joints?

It's worse than ball joints, it's CV joints. Constant Velocity joints. They're the flex joints that connect wheels to driveshaft to transmission. Since your car is front wheel drive... take it to a shop and have them do the work... it requires specialty tools and is not an easy fix.

89 reliant plymouth car stall out

You're right; It sounds like fuel delivery, but start with the simplest suspects first.
Change the fuel filter(s) first, and if this doesn't get it, go for the fuel pump.

I have a 1989 Reliant K and my emergency break wont release. You can pull on the lever and manually pull up the pedal put it cranks back down by itself when you let go.

Surprized you still have a K car running!
To fix this you'd have to get under the car and cut the cable going to the rear brakes.
I know, you don't want to do that.
It's the easiest solution.
I automatic doesn"t need a parking brake.

Where is the fuse box located in my 1989 plymouth reliant. I have looked under steering column and under the hood, still cannot find the box, the radiator fan will not turn on.

for that relay/fuse it would be located likely in the fuse panel in the engine compartment. generally they are located near the battery and will have a cover on it.
