2003 mini cooper s has yellow triangle light on

On a Cooper S the Yellow Triangle is the slip control. If this light flashes it is letting you know that it is working by cutting horse power or by using the brakes to gain traction. If this symbol is illuminated you may have just hit the switch that says ASC or DSC. If the light does not turn off after hitting the switch or by turning the car off and starting the car again, you have a problem with the ASC/DSC control module or the wheel speed sensors. You will have to take your car in to have it checked out.

97 Cavalier brake chattering at 80 km/hr or higher

Sounds as if your brake rotors are warped from overheating. You can have them machined to take this out if they are thick enough. This should take care of the problem, if not replace rotors.

RPM drops to zero at idling after engine accelerates when warm

This may been an ignition module or a MAF sensor, this car may need to be diagnosed using a OBD I computer code reader to accurately diagnose the problem.
