This is a fuel, air or sensor issue. The first thing that you need to do is take it to an autoparts store like autozone or checker and have them plug into the computer and see what error codes are there. If there are any. If not then you need to change the fuel filters, check the fuel pressure and delivery volume and see if the air filter has let any debris into the intake sensors. You might want to see about cleaning the sensors with a spray cleaner like brake solvent.

Car running rough at random when accelerating and also idle drops suddenly when slowing down and often completely stalls out when I stop. Smells strongly of gasoline when it stalls/almost stalls but I

This could be a lot of things. one of the tests that you need to run is shift it into nuetral when you are stopping and see if it still drops RPM and wants to stall. This will eliminate or conclude that it is a transmission issue. If it is still doing this then it could be a vacuum leak or fuel delivery issue.

I have a 2005 Mazda rx8. Engine was replaced about 23000 miles ago. I just replaced the battery with a Optima Red Top, starts up like its brand new. The problem is after it starts or when I'm driving and...

Many vehicle's ECMs need to 'relearn' the particular behavior of the engine if all power is removed (battery changed). Initially, it will use 'default' settings. I suggest you drive it for a couple of days and see if the situation corrects itself as the ECM learns how to manage fuel and spark on your engine during different conditions - idling, accelerating, decelerating, etc. If it doesn't improve in a few days, you may need to have it diagnosed by a qualified technician.

When slowing down & stopping 2005 Mazda tribute sputters and dies

Sounds like it could possibly be a vaccume problem, the computer sees that the vaccume has a low pressure and thus fludding the engine, or visa versa, it's seeing too high of a pressure and cutting the fuel comsumption to a minumum enough to make the engine sputter and die.. Does this happen when the cars in Netural or Reverse or Park? Just Drive?

You have a vacume leack, most likly on your PCV valve, or on the intake manifold there are a few rubber hoses that you should check for cracks and or leaks. When you find it go to the part store and buy then replace, you may e-mail me if you have any other questions
