It could be a vacuum leak in the engine. When you slam on the brakes, you rob vacuum pressure from the engine so your engine becomes starved of fuel and air temporarily. You should check all your hoses in the vacuum part of the engine.

You seem to have a very bad vacuum leak. Look at all your rubber hoses under hood , for cracked, loose , broken or missing hoses. You may even here them hissing. Replace any that you find. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

1994 Oldsmobile Bravada dies at stoplights, just changed fuel pump/filter and egr valve.Appriciate any help. thanks

check for vacuum leaks. You can do this with a can of carb spray but please be careful as it is flammable! if the ignition wires are leaking and you hit them with carb spray you will start the engine on fire!

The safer alternative is to have the engine "smoked" for vacuum leaks. This is done with a smoker. Any place that is leaking you will see smoke.

A trained ear will also be able to hear a leak.

If no leaks are found try unplugging the MAF sensor. Is is in the air tube next to the air filter box. If performance improves try cleaning it with some MAF sensor cleaner. If that doesn't work than you may need to replace it.

1996 chevy k1500 runs when idleing slight miss drives down the road fine but when comming to a stop it dies

When the light flashes it means a cylinder misfire, so you must check everything, spark, (first) injector fuel delivery intake manifold vacuum leaks and compression if not other problem accounts for the misfire.

I changed the plugs,o2 sensors,but it's still vibrating,hard I think it has an vacuum leak some where but don't know where,2001 ford focus

good chance you have a bad coil causing the miss fire. mist some water over your coils see if that makes a change in how the car idles if it gets worse or if you have single coils over your plugs look to see if they are broken. or if you have wires you might see some sparks from the current. that is a good way to go.

Car will turn over but will not start unless gas is fully applied

check for massive vacuum leak at intake and also check timing ...compression test alone does not eliminate timing as suspect

That sounds to me like the catalytic converter is going out. suggestion, take it to a muffler shop and have them check it out. As for the ticking and missfiring, mine has done the same thing for a while and I keep throwing out a vacuum leak as well as Throttle position control, cruise won't work as cruise, it will actually slow down on hills from 70-40 mph, but I know both are the problem, solution, the throttle position control is under the air intake, take the air box off of the throttle body and replace it after having autozone run a check. From there..... find someone good at mufflers as well as vacuum leaks and fix it. lol.
