Ok, lately i have been driving, and the car decides to die and kill the brakes and power steering at any given moment, mostly it happens as im downshifting but i have had it die in other surcumstances. Basically it doesnt matter what i do, it just dies. Now i looked through the codes and identified it as a vacuum leak, so i fixed that, car ran fine for a day and a half, no more rough idle, wasnt gasping for air above 2500, no more symtomes of what had been going on, then suddenly, im downshifting and it dies, locks up the drivetrain, and sends me skidding through and intersection with no steering at 40mph. Now i have had an instance where the car lost power brakes and steering while the motor was still going (was driving on the highway) and it stayed like that for about 5 minutes. Then the brakes came back and about 30 seconds later so did the steering. It made no damn sense at all. So now here i am again, trying to figure out wtf is causing my motor to do this, odd thing is that theres no more vacuum codes. Now it just has a heart attack atleast three to four times a day. After that it starts right back up and drives normally. Car only has 94000 miles on it, and ran like a bat out of hell till about 2 weeks ago. Could seriously use some help from you guys before i stick a size 14 steel toe through my quarter panel.
