You could have a vacuum leak. Look for loose or broken vacuum lines. I would start at the brake booster.

SOURCE: How do I fix the boom from going down on its own, whether the engine is running or not running?

Sounds like you need the hydraulic cylinder rebuilt.

Chevy cavalier 2002 shut off while driving, power steering went out and brakes. i turned car off and it restarted what was it and how can i fix it?

Ther is a problem with some computers in that they shut down the engine for no apparent reason. This problem hounded Kia owners as the engine just stopped at lights but restarted with no problems. Check for any fault codes and check for circuit problems with alternator as some cpu's get their power directly from the alternator and it has to be full voltage or they sense a power failure and shut down.

Why will my Mercedes Sprinter 208D NOT stop running!

There should be a fuel pump relay you might pull to stop, but that won't fix the problem.

Yes, most likely a fault in the auto transmission, and the car has shut itself off to prevent further damage.

Turns off when i slow down fast

You may have a vacuum leak somewhere in the brake booster. The vacuum is created by a tube leading to your intake manifold, and if you hit the breaks too hard, it'll **** the air out of the manifold in order to restore the vacuum- hence the engine dying. The leak could be anything from a visible hole to a pin sized hole.
