My 2000 Lexus LX470 shakes and stalls when I accelerate

Customer Question
My 2000 Lexus LX470...

My 2000 Lexus LX470 shakes and stalls when I accelerate quickly from a stopped condition (i.e. red light, etc.) or turn corner sharply. ABS & other lights flashed on. Is it still safe to drive? Thank you very much

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

Yes sometimes. stalls mostly at idle but occasionally while driving

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '00 Lexus?

Lx470

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

No, my dad passed away recently and i am undecided what to do with the car. is it worth it to repair, it has almost 200K on it. not sure if it is safe condition to sell

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it thanks

Hello Bobby thanks for getting back. Most of the time it is only when accelerating quickly. However it also it happened a few times at high speeds. Actually when the engine starts and the symbols appear, the locking of the wheels won't happened.
