    Car cuts off when braking to a low speed (n' low rpms(automatic))

    I've had this problem for a while then my father took it to the dealer about a month ago and now it has done it twice on Friday and i havent driven it since.

    I was driving to school in the afternoon and when i get to the parking lot i slow down to let someone squeeze by me and the car cut off. And again later.....i drive slowly up to the sidewalk and stop to let a friend out....when i try to get back on road the engine had already cut off.....

    I frequently get a shaking throughout the car when i get to redlights or stop signs because the engine is at a too low rpm

    wth is up?

    no aftermarket parts just a cut off air intake pipe....the filter box is all thats left....yes, the whole car starts vibrating for like 3 or so seconds when i get dwn to like 5 or less mph and this is when it sometimes cuts off

    LOL, I was just messin' witcha . Maybe your fuel injectors are all clogged up. I heard Honda's are really prone to this, but it's only noticable on auto's where there is constant power being sent to the wheels (no neutral like manual). If you put in it neutral while stopped, does it smooth out??? Try this: Put in drive, pull up parking break, step on gas as hard as you can and then step on gas. I mean FLOOR IT and make sure no one or nothing is in front of the car in case it moves. If you do that, does the car sputter? Yes, then it might be the Fuel Injectors.

    put your tranny in neutral before you stop and if this takes care of your problem, chances are your torque converter is staying locked up.

    I hate to throw in yet another idea, but does it only do it when your foot is on the brake? If so, try putting it in neutral while stopped and using the emergency brake and then put it in drive. Does the stumbling go away? If it does, you may have a vacuum leak or a bad brake booster.

    yeah, i remeber putting it in neutral will stop the shaking.....it does only happen during braking too, in either reverse or drive.....it sucks ass cuz when the egine goes out the power steering goes out so does the brakes but those are easier.....it is a major danger problem....in case i have to manuever quickly while i'm slowing down
