Question about 2003 Saturn VUE
I experience a sudden loss of power and hard braking
If your engine is nearly stalling, you will also lose braking assist, because your vacuum drops off to nothing. The first thing to do is to get a diagnostic scan. There are several sensors that can cause this to happen. Your least expensive route is often to get it scanned before looking any deeper.

Those two things are not really connected except by vacuum on your brake booster there is a hose that runs to the intake I would start by checking that for a leak it sounds to me like a vacuum leak especially with the hard brake pedal

Sounds like air in the fluid or low fluid level. Check the brake fluid level under the hood and make sure it's adequate. If not, top it off. If it is, have the brakes bled and the fluid topped off again, and you should be OK, as long as nothing was damaged during the recent brake job.

SOURCE: I put new brakes in
try adjusting the rear brake shoes but.....spin the rear wheels first is u get the feeling of the shoes grabbing then releasing ( the tire gets loose then tight as u rotate it) u will need to have the drums cut on a brake lathe or replaced...when u have this done , then adjust the rear shoes until u get a slight drag on the rear wheels..go pump the brake pedal to seat the shoes if the wheel spins free adjust the shoes more an repeat until they have a slight drag after pumping the brake pedal
