Yes a vacuum leak could cause your problem. You should try to find where the line goes. You could try plugging the line but that should only be a temporary fix. A reputable shop should not charge you much to find the connection for you. Or you could buy a manual for your car at a auto parts store. A lot of times the store will not mind if you look up the vacuum diagram there in the store.

Car idles fine, but sputters, bogs and dies if gas pedal is pressed.


new spark plugs this decade. (a tune up?0
the filter is part of all 60k tuneups. letting it clog wrecks good pumps.
my wild guess, its lack of fuel flow, do to old filter.
or low fuel pressure.
car is identical to a Corolla. so is not unique or rare as some Geo cars are.
the cam belt not changes, invites valve kissing piston tops. BOOM
end of engine. (costs more to fix then worth of car)
the word is bogging, my engine bogs
if if bogs WOT (wide open throttle) and dont catch up < ITS NOT THE TPS. ever.
tps bad causes short bogs, called hesitations.
The map sensor , is what measure air flow and the ECU matches fuel to this air flow.
my guess, is it does that, but fuel pressure is like 15PSI, bad.

Sounds like you have an air lock in your distribution block or it could be a bad distribution block all together. Sometimes you can tap it lightly and the air lock will bleed out. Also check your vacuum booster. If it is real hard to press the brake petal down, with the motor running, the vacuum booster diaphragm is blown, or there is a vacuum leak in the line to the booster. Pull the vacuum line off the booster with the engine running to see if there is vacuum to the booster, this will likely make the engine stall out if the booster is working properly. A little trick I do when bleeding my brakes is take about 16 inches of clear tubing that fits the bleeder, then get a quart Mason jar stick the tubing that is attached to the bleeder into the jar, then add about and inch of brake fluid to the jar and start pumping the petal. Always keep an eye on the jar and your master cylinder as to not let the master cylinder run out, or the jar to overflow. Hope this helps, good luck. If I think of something else I'll do another post.

Brakes are hard to depress causing stopping problem


1: inspect all brake linings first.
no pulling left or right braking?
the car has 100% full manual brakes. if the brake booster fails.
(its only and assist !!! for 50lb small folks)
so does it? it takes more pedal pressure but has 100% full braking.
this is no accident its by design.
make sure none of the brake shoes/pads are soaked in DoT3/4 fluid
or grease or gear oil.
and no brake fluid leaks end to end, this is really #1 on all cars.
look, then look again. even behind and in front of the master cylinder.
look at tires (inside for fluid leaks>)
2: do the booster test. did the vacuum hose to it fall off?
or got pinched, or ?

google brake booster test
if ABS system. get it all checked,
if ABS get the ABS scanned.

if you cant stop correctly,,,,???? , dont drive.
get it fixed.

The brakes on my 1998 intrepid are new. the brake hose are new, the caliper is new, everything is new except for the master cylinder. i cant figure out why my front brakes are still sticking. when i drive...


When you installed new calipers, did you bleed the lines out? Air trapped in the system can cause sticking. Unless they were sticking before you replaced all the parts. Try unplugging the ABS controller under the hood. If that does not work and there is no air in the lines then it would be 1 of 2 things.

1. Master cylinder failing to return.
2. Brake booster not providing enough vacuum.

Start the car. let it run for 10 seconds. while its running pump the brakes. let the brakes go and shut off the car. now press the peddle til it gets stiff. Now hold it down firmly. If the peddle pressure fades, replace the booster.

After changing spark plagues ,the breaks became very hard to press....


Check the large vacuum line that goes to the brake booster.. You likely knocked that loose and are getting no boost.

Try unplugging the vacuum line to the brake power booster with the vehicle in park and running. Press the brakes if it feels the same then the vacuum booster is bad and needs to be replaced. Try it with the vehicle running, and then not running. If the booster is boosting(for lack of a better term) there will be a difference when it's running.

Check the vacuum hose for inside collapsing. Sometimes the vac lines inner lining will seperate & cause all kinds of similar problems when the brake peddle is depressed. Also check your egr valve operation. It could be blocked up with carbon or leaking vacuum. Good luck!

Have an '88 corolla sedan (manual), after brakes used in quick succession, brake pedal looses all assistance and pedal goes hard, resulting in poor brakes...any ideas


this is probably normal. your power brake booster operates by storing engine vacuum to be used later to assist the brakes. when you pump the pedal repeatedly in a short period, the stored vacuum gets used up and it does not have sufficient time to build up the vacuum needed to effectively assist with braking. it generally takes a few seconds to build up sufficient vacuum from when you let off the brake pedal to when you press it again. however, brake boosters can fail over time (it's not uncommon, but it does happen), so if this is a new development for this vehicle, you may need to replace the brake booster or check the vacuum line and the check-valve between it and the engine

Brakes hiss when applied, idle raises slightly....


You likely have an internal leak in the booster. Unplug the vacuum line from the booster, plug the rubber line with a bolt or something and see if the eliminates he noise. If it does, then your booster is bad.

Good luck.
