Have a 1995 Buick Regal. Car stalls when braking at a stop sign or braking into a left or right turn.RPMs drop to 500 then stalls without warning.Car starts right up with no problem and runs great.

Do you hear a sucking noise from under the hood when you apply the brakes? You could have a bad brake booster venting too much engine vacuum when applying the brakes causing the engine to die.

Vibrates when hard braking

Sounds like your front brake rotors are warped. You will either need to have them turned back straight on a brake lathe or have them replaced.

Clicking noise goes away when braking

Look at the constant velocity joints on that side. When the rubber boot tears it lets road dirt in which fouls the grease and allows premature wear on the cv joint components.

No braking assist, rushing sound (air escaping)wheng brake pedal applied.

HI this sounds like the vacuum booster has a leak in the diaphragm. That is why you hear that sound when you push on the brake pedal. With out the vacuum to help this leaves you with a very stiff brake pedal. You will need to replace the Booster which is located behind the brake master cylinder and on the firewall. Good luck

Occasionally the right turn signal light turns on when braking

Sound's like their is a problem with the right hand rear light cluster.The reason it only happen's going down a hill is you applying the brake. The only place the brake and indicator light's come together is the rear clusted. To check this apply the hand brake gently with the button held in instead of useing the foot brake. This may not be the fault but it is worth a try as it seems the most likely problem.

While braking it sounds weired specially while immediate braking.

From your brief description it would appear you need to have your brakes serviced immeadiatly and I would suggest NOT using the vehicle until you do.
The screech is the sound made by Metal to Metal contact in the braking system and could be very dangerous, the Brakes have Disc pads which when applied push together against a disc/rotor and therefore slows your vehicle down as you apply them.
Over time these pads wear out and the surface then becomes Metal, so now when you apply the brakes you are in fact wearing through the discs/rotors as well and reducing severely the braking efficiency/safety of your vehicle.
Continuing to do so will damage these components so much that the whole braking system will fail or need to be replaced.
I would be very very cautious if you intend driving this vehicle.
I hope this helps, please remember to rate my effort?
