Brake failure

If you are talking about the brake pedal being stiff and too hard to push, then working easily again - it sounds like you temporarily lost the power assist. This will happen again and it is not safe to drive until properly repaired.

Many decades ago cars had no power assist and took much more foot pressure and much longer distance to stop. So your brakes were working, just not the assist.

The power assist is provided by a vacuum line from the engine. The likely causes of the failure are: stalling or stopped engine, leak in hose from engine to brake assist booster or leak in the diaphragm inside the brake booster. There are also other much less likely causes from brake fluid lines and the master cylinder. Regardless, don't drive knowing the brakes are likely to fail.

It sounds like a vac problem with the engine or the brake booster. The brakes should be vac assist and that vacuum comes from the engine.
If it were something with the ABS system you should have a warning light on the dash. Nothing in the transmission would affect the brakes.

usually a stiff brake pedal is good, but if it is excessively stiff, it is usually caused by the brake booster

2002 Camry Brakes building pressure

I've seen this problem before. It's not the booster or master cylinder, it's the vacuum line itself. The inner lining is collapsing on the vacuum line. Replace it & the problem should be solved. When you put your foot on the brake the engine stumbles or stalls because the vacuum is cut off. This sometimes happens to vacuum line hoses & can be dangerous. Good luck!

Engine shakes when idling, not when driving; brake problem as well

Check your vacuum hoses and see if one has come off. You might hear a hissing under the hood when running also if it is vacuum leak. this will cause both problems
