Sounds like you may have a transmission problem. When was the last time you changed the tranny fluid? If your fluid is fresh and topped off properly then your transmission definately has a problem!

Checking tranny: with engine running place tranny thru all gears (brake applied) put back in park, keep engine on, pull tranny dipstick and check level.

If you do these things and you still have a problem you may need to take to a transmission shop.

1993 Oldsmobile Bravada braking is causing the engine to stutter and sometimes shut off. Brakes are also hard to engage, engine is idling oddly, it has begun to shut off when turning the wheels when...


hard brake pedal and the engine is idling rough usually indicates the power brake booster has gone bad. the booster has vacuum going to it from the engine so if the diaphragm in the booster starts leaking then it affects engine performance.

When i hit the gas i feel a clunk in the steering


check the motor mounts. It is possible that you are hearing the engine hit the firewall. You need yourself and one other person to perform a test. With the hood open start the engine. Put the emergency brake on and have one person stand on either side of the engine. The other person in the driver seat hold the brake pedal down hard with your left foot, put the car in gear (drive, then reverse) and rev the motor a few times. The person out side the car should look for the engine moving when the engine rpm increase.

Is there somthing hitting the gas pedal, like the floor mat? Or maybe something under the dash came loose and is getting caught under the brake pedal and pushing on the gas. Put the shifter in neutral if you get into a situation where going to hit something or someone. The engine has a rev limiter, to prevent it from over reving.

Engine stuttering


have you replaced your O2 censor yet? or changed your air filter lately. I know our avenger is pretty picky we had a dirty air filter once and it seemed like the O2 censor went out because it kept trying to shut off when the idle was lower. a new air filter did a bit for it then we got a censor reader that you plug into the brain box of the car or the cigarette lighter and it told us the O2 was out and our car was doing the low idle thing. after we fixed it no problems.
