No speed when gas pedal is to floor tranny light came on

With the oil light coming on and the brake pedal being hard to press I would say that the engine stopped hence no vacuum -no power assist from the booster.- hard brake pedal. The lock uo feeling may come from the engine seizing up while you were still in gear

1993 Lexus Ls400 loss of power a 2500-3000rpm when you accelerate hard on the gas pedel, hower if you press down on the gas pedal slowly the power will increase all the way up to 6000rps with no power...

Sounds like your fuel filter is getting clogged up. Get that changed and it will be fixed. Should be an easy, cheap fix. Hope this helps, James Booth :))

I have 2000 olsmobile intrigue and i haveproblems with my car shuting off when driving mainly when pressing on gas

Hi Mariah
The problem could be the fuel air mixture when you press the gas pedal the vehicle will try to pull in more fuel into the engine now if for example your fuel pump isn't functioning well then this could account for the sudden vehicle turning off however you don't go into detail if the vehicle just stalls or if all electronics go off too.
If the electronics go off too it could be a combination of the alternator and the vehicle drawing too much power. Have you had that replaced lately?
A quick check is to have the air and fuel filters checked on this vehicle too. Usually to have both replaced is about 100 dollars and can be a very quick fix... On this vehicle the fuel filter needs to be replaced every 70,000 km. So check that first if the vehicle only stalls.
If that resolves it fantastic however if it doesn't have a mechanic hook your car up to a code analyzer and he will tell you what the car is telling him when the car shuts off.
