Customer Question
My 2007 chev colorado...

My 2007 chev colorado 5 cyl stumbles badly and sometimes dies when braking, will start right back . runs good when under power, i changed plugs, no difference, doesn't make any difference if the gas tank is full or nearly empty

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

No, good gas mileage, starts good

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Colorado yourself? What have you tried so far?

The truck has 125,000 miles, i put in new plugs recently

Is the check engine light on?

Are there any codes in the computer?

Your saying it idles rough or stalls at lower engine rpm?

Is that correct?
