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.

Its possible one of the plug wires got wet and is causing problems.
You could also have a leaking head gasket which would allow coolant into one of the cylinders. That would ruin a spark plug along with having compression problems.
If the miss gets bad enough the check engine light should come on, and the computer would then have a trouble code telling you which cylinder is acting up.

Car starts right up but 2 seconds dies, u can start it right up again & it dies again, won't run. has good spark & fuel pressure good when dies

You are on the right track by finding the injector pulse missing.
The computer grounds the injectors based on signals from the cam and crank sensors. You may have to use a scanner to check for trouble codes in the computer and watch the sensors work.
The problem could also be a relay or the key switch.

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.

2002 eclipse check engine light

Either a bad plug, dirty plug, bad plug wire, not quite broken wire, bad or going bad coil, dirty injector. I would reset it first and make sure it comes back. If it does I would check the aforementioned items first.

Thanks for using FixYa!
