SOURCE: Car bogges out when the gas pedal is pressed.

If the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. It sounds like it could be a faulty throttle position sensor, but getting the codes will end speculation and show what faults the computer has noted, so the problem can be properly addressed. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Scan it for codes. Check for vavuum leaks. Make sure all the ducting from the air filter to the throttle body is tight and not leaking air in.

1996 GMC Jimmy, flutters when in idel

You could have a cloged EGR valve on the jimmy, which can be removed and cleaned with carb or injector cleaner which you can buy at any parts store.
As for the air leak on the brake system on the truck. That's bad and needs to be replaced or repaired, taking a guess that the sevice brake valve gaskets may be bad.
Good luck and hope this helps.
