Question about 2002 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Started out with me having my foot on the break and the gear in drive and it started kind of shaking. Then when I was driving home I stopped at a stop sign and the car just completely died. Any idea what this could be?

If your car starts to run rough or dies when you apply the brakes this is an indicator that you have a vacum leak. air assisted brakes use alot vacum so when they are applied with one of the hoses off it causes problems. had anything checked under your hood recently? oil? tranny fluid? air filter? it doesnt take much to dislodge an old and worn or poorly installed vacum hose.

When my 1993 Honda Accord sedan is in drive gear and idle with my foot on the break the car starts to shake and seems as if it's going to cut off what could be the problem???


test it by using the park brake and not the foot brake
If it idles ok then the problem will be in the brake booster , valves or diaphragm

not 100% on your details but if your saying you can fill it in your steering wheel while stop with your foot on the break. check your power steering pump.

I'm sorry to say you will not find an answer online for this.
As a mechanic I would have to be there in person, and the problem would have to be happening for me to track down the cause.
I will say I did not understand your statement about the gears behind the dash, what you described sounded like a wiring problem or something in one of the electrical components.
If the check engine light or the ABS light came on while the engine was running, you could have trouble codes stored in the computer. So it may be worth a visit to a shop or auto parts store to get the computer scanned. The codes would give you a direction to look in.

My 2002 Chrysler Town & Country started shaking yesterday not violently but I could tell it was not normal. It was perfectly fine when I left my house. I went to turn down a road to get to a friend's...


COLD WEATHER IF YOU HAVE WATER IN FUEL.ENGINE WILL SHAKE AND SPUTTER.TRANSMISSION WILL ACT UP IN COLD WEATHER.CHECK COOLANT LEVEL AND TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL WHEN YOU FIRST START VECHICLE.LET VECHICLE IDLE UNTIL IT GET WARMED UP.THAT SHOULD HELP.FILL UP FUEL TANK PUT A BOTTLE OF FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER AND GAS TREATMENT IN TANK SEE IF IT HELPS.
