Sounds like you have a bad cylinder...
This could be due to a number of reasons...
No spark at one cylinder, due to a bad spark plug, coil, or wire.
No fuel due to a bad injector
Bad cylinder with low or no compression

When my car is going fast in i hit the brakes my car shake like it doesn't want to stop. what is it.


It sounds like you have a warped rotor. when you brake it shakes the wheel and throws the abs sensor at the wheel assembly and turns your abs on because it thinks that you are locking them up. Replace rotors and pads and it will solve the issue

Replace instrument cluster


Is your speedometer or tachometer needle acting weird or giving wrong readings? If so it's probably the drive motors going bad, very common for sunfire instrument cluster and speedometers they all need replaced which isn't too hard if you have the parts and the equipment.

If not email me at fred@drspeedometer.com or visit my site at DrSpeedometer.com and I can fix it for you for a good price.

Speedometer just stopped working with no notice


If trans is still shifting its most likely a blown cluster fuse or bad cluster.If you have a check engine light & trans don't shift most likely blown trans fuse or trans vss (speedo) harness at right drive axle broken puple with white stripe wire or light green wire with black stripe
