Sounds like bad vacuumed leak because of brake being hard.check that the hose from power brake diapham on fire wall to intake manifold in on not got a hole in it and if it seems ok pull hose off brake unit and plug and start.good luck.if that solves it replace brake booster.

It could be a vacuum leak in the engine. When you slam on the brakes, you rob vacuum pressure from the engine so your engine becomes starved of fuel and air temporarily. You should check all your hoses in the vacuum part of the engine.

Why is it so hard to apply brake pedal?


_______power brake booster, check vacuum to booster and the check valve for brake booster. primary symtom is high hard pedal that requires greater then normal pedal pressure to stop car. testing booster= pump brakes several times with engine off to deplete stored vacuum. turn on engine with pushing slightly on brake pedal. you should be able to feel the pedal fade away a bit, and then become firm. But not hard. if you feel nothing at the pedal when engine starts. Brake booster is not working. Good-day! make sure vacuum is going to booster with engine running. it may just be a bad vacuum line or check valve.

Will a bad air flow sensor make my 1999 grand am not start


Hard start, no start, chugging acceleration, synthesized RPM limiter, sputtering idle.
Just to name a few.
MAF sensors can also become dirty. They are essentially just a piece of wire, dangling in your intake tubing. Over years they can become filthy. Auto part stores sell a brand of cleaner called Mass Air Sensor Cleaner, brand name is CRC. It's good stuff. Just take your MAF off the car, and spray the little sensor wire down with it.
If you are able to see the sensor wire, it should be pristinely white. As white as the background of this page. If it is not, clean it.

Audi a4 has a hard time starting


What do you hear when you try to start it? Does it just chug chug chug for a long time? Could be a bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, bad spark plugs, or a host of other things. If you can get the OBD scanned with a VAG-COM see if you have any faults.

Brake booster appears not to be working properly. brakes work ok for 1 or 2 apps then pedal gets hard. cannot hear any vacume leaks. the car does have a vacume switch in the booster


the booster is the problem, or a hole or leak in vacuum line to booster check the check valve also ! from manifold. heres the symtoms of a bad brake booster. primary symtom is a hard pedal on application, to test booster. pump brakes several times with engine off. to deplete stored vacuum. turn on engine with pushing slightly on brake pedal. you should feel the pedal fade away abit and then become firm. but not hard. if you feel nothing at pedal when engine starts, brake booster is not working! check the vacuum lines first!!

well, a hard firm pedal, usually indicates a bad brake booster or a vacuum leak to booster or the vacuum check valve, on booster. TO TEST BRAKE BOOSTER; pump brakes several times with engine off to deplete stored vacuum. turn on engine with pushing slightly on pedal. you should feel the pedal fade away a bit and then become firm, but not hard. if you feel nothing at the pedal when engine starts the booster is at fault. good-luck !!
