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.

2000 Chevy Camaro automatic, V6 3.8l engine, stalls then starts, how do I fix this problem


If it stalls out when hot and then restarts after it cools down it could be one of two things. The ignition module shutting the spark down or the fuel pump shutting the fuel off. Next time it happens pull a plug wire and ground it out and have someone crank it to see if you have a nice blue spark. Be careful to not shock yourself.

1986 camaro with 2.8 v6 cranks but will not start.


Hi, it can be because of the timing chain or gear broke. This times the valves with the pistons.
If the car has spark, then it is not the timing gear or chain, as this drives the cam, which in turn drives the distributor shaft. If it doesn't have spark, the quickest way to check if it is the timing gear/chain is to pull the distributor cap and see if the rotor is turning when you crank the engine.
For a car to run it has to have compression, spark, air and fuel, in the right amounts and at the right time. If a car isn't even trying to start, one of these is usually missing. Given that you have spark, and fuel pressure at the rail, this would seem to narrow down the options.
Take care

Check your battery connections if they are good then your battery has probably gone bad the loss of power to your computer will cause the check engine light to come on
