Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central. Please make sure to let me know exactly what is needed from me so I can provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service. We first off need to go after what is causing this misfire. Normally that is bad plugs, wires, or coils. The next step is checking the fuel pressure, and monitoring the injector pulse. The brake issue could be to blame on the engine stalling and the vacuum to the brake booster effected. Have you checked for any trouble codes stored which would point to the fault sooner than diagnosing by symptom? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On your screen at the top you should see a rating 1-5 stars and a green submit button. Please make sure to select one and press submit. I am not compensated by the website unless a customer rates. Rating only pays me from the deposit you have already made, it does not charge you more, nor close the post. Also all follow ups are free and welcome.Thanks Chris

I waz hoping u could narrow it down for me but tommorrow im taking it back to them

If it will start, if it were flooded it would clear that out in about 10 seconds of run time. With the information I have so far just that its stalling and shaking. I have to start with the most likely causes, which are the ignition components.
