Question about 1997 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

When I'm driving the gas pedal goes out kindof. If I press on the gas all the way I get nothing. If I press on it slightly I get a little gas until it eventually goes out completely. I let it sit for a few minutes then start the vehicle again. After driving for a short while it happens again.

I press on the gas pedal on my 2007 Kia optima and nothing happens. The engine is running


If you have drive by wire, It could be the TPS/gas pedal sensor or the vehicle is in limp mode. Have the codes read. If it is cable driven, the cable has popped off the throttle or the cable broke.

When driving I press on the brakes and they push back up and it's hard to stop what could be wrong I checked the brake fluid and the lid was open a little


Try a brake servo test by pumping the brake pedal until hard and keeping pressure on the pedal and start the engine and if the servo is working the pedal should move down slightly if not servo is faulty
If you have ABS the pump could be faulty and that needs a trained engineer to test and repair if possible

There is never a test or reason to pump your brakes

Accomplishes absolutely nothing.

There is no pressure in a braking system at all,
until you SLOWLY apply the brake pedal.

Then less than 1" off movement in the master cyl,
will develop 600 to 1800 lbs at the wheels

Release the brake pedal, the system goes to zero,
IT DOES NOT HOLD ANY PRESSURE

To answer your question

You not suppost to press the pedal hard
The saying goes--you apply the brakes,
not force the pedal arm and pin into the
vacuum booster, as though you want to damage it

When your driving what happens ?
You have higher manifold vacuum and
thus your pedal is normal,why the VACUUM

thats because the car is not at operating temperature.you will get a slight drop in power and drivability until its warm.do not try to use any more than 1/3rd gas pedal until its warm anyway.your car has an automatic cold start device (choke)that operates when the car is cold.

When I press the gas pedal nothing happens until I press it like half way down then it "catches" and takes off, what could be the problem & how can I fix this? Thanks


sounds like the throttle cable is in need of adjustment,push the gas pedal down with your hand to see if it is just free play(only the return spring pressure may be felt if it is)with someone looking at the throttle body for movement.Dont do it up too tight,leave a little slack in the cable.....
