    Default sudden RPM drop on Petrol in City 2001 EXIS

    Hi guys

    Facing some issues in my car. When the car is steered either to left or right, RPM drops to sometimes Zero and engine stops. Re-igniting works as if there was never an issue.

    When AC is turned on for say 30mins, suddenly applying a brake cause Zero RPM and engine stops. Sometimes, the engine oil lights turns red while driving on AC. Horns doesn't work either when either brakes are applied, or AC is turned on.

    To me, it feels as if there is some electrical work but electricians say everything is OK, and refer to mechanic. When mechanic is referred, one recommended to change the engine as it is not creating vacuum for acceleration. However, other recommended to refer to electrician. Puzzled !

    I've decided to change the engine, but not sure if all such issues will get resolved. Need experts' advise

    Thanks.

    PS: I cannot switch the car, as many alike may know how it feels when driving this one

    How is the performance of AC when it is running? does the car feel underpowered when you accelerate? did you get the air filter checked?

    The copper-brass radiators are good and perform better than the aluminum ones.
    Manufacturers stopped using them because of their prices
