When driving around at any speed on highway my car feels like gliding It feels like I'm going to lose control and sometimes when I brake coming down hill the front end shakes violently. then will stop

This is an indication of a strut issue. The shocks dampen the spring in the strut assembly. IF you have loose fastening components or bushings or a bad shock in the strut you can get a violent shudder when you apply brakes on a down hill direction.

Just replaced steering gear box an now the

if the correct steering box was installed and you have a shudder afterwards then it sounds like you still have air in the system. to bleed the air out you have to start the car and turn the steering wheel all the way left to the stop and then all the way to the right to the stop. repeat and check the power steering fluid level when the foamy fluid goes away. you don`t say why you changed the box, was it due to a different problem or was it doing the same thing.

For my '01, v6, galant: what kind of transmission filter and fluid does my car use/need. Please help.....

Use only Genuine Mitsubishi Car Care Products Diamond ATF SP III to avoid Torque Converter Shudder and failure. I learned the hard way. My local repair shop, a NAPA repair shop, used Ultralube Transtex ATF Premium Dexron III/Mercon Performance. This fluid caused violent Torque Converter Shudder which if not immediately flushed out could have led to failure. After flushing and replacing with Diamond ATF SP III, the Shudder is eliminated.

1991 Isuzu 4X4 Pickup 3.1 V6 won't warm start plus shudder in low

Your flywheel sound like it has hot spots on it, making the clutch chatter. You might need to pull the flywheel off and get it re-surface. This is like turning your rotor, or brake drum. If you pull the flywheel, you will see discolor spots on your flywheel. This is called hot spots, and will make the clutch slip.

On the other problem, have you changed to fuel filter and fuel pump. It almost sound like your running out of fuel????
