Car when started revs up and down wants to die, when it's cold outside its worse car will start and die unless keep foot on gas, when driving it runs fine when warm until I need to slow down or stop revs up and down, wants to die, brake peddle gets stiff as a brick and car doesn't want to stop but still wants to go forward, jerks bad when stopped like acouple is havenong sex in the back of car, also vibrates real bad, head lights and cluster dim on and off when revs up and down, I've changed the fuel filter, spark plugs, spark plug wires, coil pack, egr silenoid, egr valve, and the thermostat is about 2-3 yrs old. It seems todo it when it's below 50 degrees outside but when it's above that car does it till motor warms to temp then brakes and motor run fine. It's just really bad in cold weather for some reason. Any ideas or huge helpful hints. I took it to advanced, oreily a, and auto zone had them pull codes, said o2 sensor bank 1&2 egr, vaccum leak, injectors, misfire on 1 and 3. 1, 2, 3 and 3. Before I started driving this car it was my wife's, she started having probs with it when I looked underneath the car the cat was glowing red and was on fire I gutted the cat and it helped for awhile but then these misfires started happening I changed all this stuff so far and it still does it.
have the same problem?
