I would do a basic tune up, plugs and plug wires, if that doesn't help start looking at the catalytic converter, check to see if it is pluged.

My 1997 Ford F150 Truck,it shudders and dies unless I put it in park at a stop sign? we took it for analysis and they couldn't find the problem,


I have seen this symptom and it is caused by a leaking power brake vacuum booster, when you apply the brakes it creates a huge engine vacuum leak and this causes the engine to run lean and rough and die in some cases. Most likely the shop was looking for an engine issue when it was a brake related problem

Have a 1995 Buick Regal. Car stalls when braking at a stop sign or braking into a left or right turn.RPMs drop to 500 then stalls without warning.Car starts right up with no problem and runs great.


Do you hear a sucking noise from under the hood when you apply the brakes? You could have a bad brake booster venting too much engine vacuum when applying the brakes causing the engine to die.

My 2004 Pontiac aztek runs great unless you have to go up a hill or pass someone on the highway. Three different mechanics including the dealership can't figure this out. When u accelerate more than...


Loss of power at highway speed is usually clogged fuel filter or clogged air filter. Checking fuel pressure won't tell you if the filter is clogging up. You can still have pressure, just no volume. Air filters can do the same, except it will usually die or stumble coming to stops. The abs and disable light won't affect the engine performance. Hopefully you have a bad wheel sensor that is also disabling the AWD. The sensor is around $100 the actuator for the AWD is over $300

There is an ABS sensor on each wheel. When you sprayed the WD 40 on it you probably cleaned it so as it would give a correct reading, hence the check engine light going away. The noise you seem to have cured straightening the heat shield away from the exhaust may have been caused by that.
It is possible your engine mounts have deteriorated and allowing the engine to shift. It may have just been too close to the heat shield. On the ABS sensor, the wiring harness plug in sometimes needs to be cleaned and you may have accomplished just that. I certainly would be careful about putting any lubricant close to the brake pads or shoes. Brake material can absorb liquids and cause you a braking failure on that wheel.

My Silverado front end wobbles at any speed, not affected braking


Couple of checks , mud in front rims will give you a wobble. Front tire cord seperation or loose wheel nuts. , Wore out tie rod end, front wheel bearing play, or a weight has fallen off the rim and it needs balancing. If it is vibrating your steering wheel, have the front end looked at right away.
