SOURCE: car keeps stalling when brakes applied, then starts but turns off

I dont know why, but one time my truck was low on trans fluid and after I topped it off, it didnt stall anymore when put into gear. as fro the odometer i dont know, it may have to go out completely before any diagnosis can be done.

SOURCE: Brake light, reverse light and turn signal issues

Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.

Stopping at red light the car starts to stutter as I accelerate

Your confusing MAP with a MAF sensor . You can not clean a MAP sensor .
manifold absolute pressure sensor (MAP sensor )
mass air flow sensor MAF you can clean .

admissions = emissions !
accelerate again and it starts to stutter. Try the TPS - throttle position sensor .

Car stutters/ hesitates

Well I am not a mechanic, but I am fairly handy with a wrench. My initial suspect would be some sort of transmission issue whether it be mechanical or sensor related.Is it more noticeable when accelerating slowly vs. a quick acceleration? That could mean a torque converter. When is the last time that you had the transmission fluid changed? A good shop should be able to rule out many issues by looking at the fluid that comes out (looking for metal shavings and the like). Taking your car to a transmission specialist may be your next viable option. Hope this helps

sounds like an idle air control valve. some can be pretty expensive, good news is they can be cleaned. get a can of brake parts cleaner, a rag and go at it. they sometimes get a sutty build-up that will make it not register right. its no big task, two maybe three screws. pull it out, clean it good, check the o-ring, and put it back. hope thats all it is.

1993 Saturn sc2 stutters and backfires accerlerating

Check to see it th chain guides are worn. this can cause a retarded or advance on timing. Also do a compression check if you can, this will show that the valves are opening and closing on time. Run some injection cleaner through it first as a sticky injector could also be an issue.

Trouble Accelerating and brakes are a little loose

Does it make a hissing noise when you push on the break peddel? or do you hear what sounds like a whiseling noise when its at idle? thats all signs of a vacume leak, it sounds me to be a bad vacume booster Witch will acount for you having to push hard on the break peddel, and it running bad when you step on the gas.
