My 2007 Chevy Aveo stalls at lights and stop signs. I had the 2 sensors related to the timing replaced, the throttle box replaced, and a new coil, all in the past month, but nothing has changed.


a simple test here is to idle the car, and put your foot on the brake
if it stalls then the problem is a faulty brake booster
every body sits at lights /stop signs with their foot on the brake not realizing it and miss that bit of evidence in determining a problem
check for vacuum leaks ( transmission actuator hose, vent controls) run fault codes to see if there are problem sensors

Engine cuts out when foot brake applied


sounds to me like a severe vacuum issue...pump the brake pedal quickly while in park if engine start to stall or does stall then take carb cleaner and spray vacuum lines and around intake near gasket engine will rev or die out when you hit a leak...very careful inspection of lines if no money for carb cleaner..or it could be brake booster is bad...loud air sound when pushin or holding pedal would indicate and issue there

Subaru Liberty 96 dropping out of gear intermittently and stalling, too.


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

With my foot on the brake and in drive I rev the gas but when I take my foot off the car idle drops and then it stalls


Check under the hood for a vaccuum leak. This could be a bad vaccuum hose. If no vaccuum leak then this actually sounds like your IAC is bad (idle air control motor) and needs replaced.

57 Honda Civic with tiptronic transmission is stalling


I believe it is the computer sensing the exhaust components and that is the reason for the drop. My truck does the same thing, so that is my answer.
