    Doing a donut in my car made it choke, nearly die and the gas pedal didn't respond to anything. I had to shut it off and turn it back on. Scary moment nevertheless!

    lol what dethinboots said! Our cars just hate donuts for some reason.

    PS check your power-steering fluid. Did you hear a whine after it or anything like that?

    Ya your pump maybe taking a crap on you.

    GM ps pumps are'nt always the greatest, try to stay off the stopper/lock next time.

    Take your belt lose. Then see if you can pull the PS pump pully out by hand.

    This is starting to sound way to familiar.
