Car has shut off twice at stop light running rough at braking and idling gas gauge has dropped showing more fuel than day before. My car has shut off twice two days in a row at stop light. Running rough and noisy at acceleration and braking when I put it in park the noise goes away. Also the gas gauge is showing more fuel than the day before

Has the check engine light come on? Does it run normally other than at an idle?

No the check engine light is off. When I am driving seems fine just issue when stopping and braking when it shut off at stop light the clock resets and everything goes off. When brake is on it almost a deep vibration

It sounds like an electrical issue. Have you checked to make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight? Have you had the battery or alternator tested? Checked for any ground problems?
