There is a plastic valve going to the brake booster. That part or the brake booster itself can be the cause of your stalling. You are venting too much vacuum and killing the engine.

What would be the problem if it stalls out when you step on the brakes and then you need a boost to start again


It sounds to me like your alternator is not charging. When you step on the brakes the taillights are using all of the power in the battery.

1991Buick skylark stall when hitting brakes


Check the brake booster. It is connected to the inlet manifold as it uses the vacuum coming from the inlet manifold. A leaking diaphragm might cause to much air entering the inlet manifold. Start the engine and let it idle - check that it doesn\'t idle to low, if so adjust first - step hard on the brake pedal as during an emergency stop. If the engines stalls it is the brake booster.

Transmission


A/T or M/T (auto or stick ,we dont know)
n moving in drive, reverse or Low or 1? or 2? (me too lazy to look what tranny you have)
it can be 2 things
1: lack of engine power
2: bad clutch or transmission

who do we tell? easy
you step on gas , RPM goes way high and MPH dont. (slips)
tranny slip.
you step on gas, RPM tracks with MPH, good ,
you then do the 5second max. tranny stall test in every car FSM made. and see the stall speed, with brakes hard set.
too high is tranny slip
way to low, engine power POOR.

alldata.com has all this on tranny. stall speed.
the FSM turn to on car A/T service, see STALL test.
bingo.
or youtube the vast number of videos on topic, stall.


wont move at all ,can be :
brake drag (passes stall test)
but first , the tests are, for bad engine or trans,
pick the one it is , state so, and we can go much farther.

Engine stalls when braking hard an when driving over speed bumps at idle.


if there is no pproblem starting your vehicle, then battery is ok aswell as the alternator which charging it up. when in motion , you stop at red traffic lights, then suddenly your car was dying or stalling but as you step on gas harder shifting it to neutral and holding the brake down, the result is getting more power but still lthe same. have your spark-plugsreplace immediately. if still didnt help-out, get new distributor cap which is maybe rusty or wet. other option is get new sparkplug cables. (last option maybe is get new ignition coil which probably busted. step by step solution and dont buy those all okay!!! godbless

Did the car stall out? If the car stalled out she would have had to step hard on the brake to get the car to stop. When a car stalls you loose the power brakes causing most people to panic and step too hard on the brake causing them to lock up. If the car overheated there should be an inactive code in the ECM. Bring the car to an Auto Zone and they will scan your ECM for free. Good Luck!!

Jeep stalls



I had the same problem... frustrating.

I picked up a repair manual at the parts store. I took off the throttle body and cleaned it with throttle body cleaner spray. I changed the Idle Air Control Valve (idle speed motor) which was very clogged. While I had the throttle body off I also changed the Map Sensor and Throttle Position Sensor. The manual will walk you through the steps. I had never done anything like this before. If I can do you so can you.
My Jeep has never run better. Good Luck
