When driving my gas pedal goes out. If I press

When driving my gas pedal goes out. If I press the gas all the way I get nothing. If I press it slightly I get a little gas until eventually it goes out completely. I park the vehicle and wait a few minutes and start it back up. Then I drive for a little bit and 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 I press the pedal to the floor I get nothing.


I'm not to sure on this one but i had a very similar problem with one of my cars it turned out to the the throttle position sensor had gone bad. In my case though everything was fine till the car heated up. Then I never know what was going to happen. Most the time at lights my care would just stall when i hit the gas. I though it was a vacuum hose issue but there was no leek. If the throttle position sensor is not working or is not working like it should then the engine will not respond to the gas pedal being hit. Or will rev real high when not being hit. I hope this helps you and solves you issue!

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
brake booster
