Your idle may need to be set up a little I had the same problem with my 1992 Geo Metro 3 cylinder 1 Liter, when i stopped at a stop light the car would die. Check your compression on all cylinders, most likely the problem is with some burned exhaust valves. I overhauled my motor, new piston rings and replaced all exhaust valves, now it idles just fine. Answer--- You may have a flithy air filter which will starve the car. Or it could be dirty injectors and a fuel filter that needs changing. A whole lot cheaper to try these before you do a rebuild.

Probable causes for brake warning light on?

It probably means that either the brake fluid is leaking or the brakes are failing. You should get it checked out. Can be that the master cylinder is low of brake fluid. Unless you have a leak this is a sign that your brake pads more than likely need replacing. As the pads wear the fluid level goes down. Inspect your brake pads.
