Sudden power surge -happens in stop and start traffic. Foot on brake when power surge happens-I had to slam on brakes to prevent read end collosion. Three events in last two weeks.


Just my opinion, I wouldn't drive till you get it looked at, that sounds dangerous.
How long since a tune-up?
Any applicable trouble codes?
Sounds like something is telling the computer to up the idle, at the moment, I don't know why? Are you running the ac when this happens?
Check and clean throttle-body and anything that has to do with idle air system. Also, check the maf sensor, where applicable.

2003 nissan frontier stalls when i slam on the brakes


Check oil level, but might be idle motor going bad. The idle motor kicks down the idle as needed as the rpm dictates. If sudden reduction in rpm occurs the idle motor normally keeps up and motor continues running at reduced idle. Unless its going out on you, then you may experience stalling when speed is suddenly reduced such as hard braking.

Lost power steering and brakes on 96 Astro


Hello altgraph1: My name is Roger and I can help. The power steering and the brakes are directly connected. If the power steering pump fails you will also loose the brake assist. This vehicle does not have a vacuum booster you have a hydro-boost brake system. This unit uses the power steering pressure to assist the stopping of the vehicle. You will need special tools to determine if the power steering pump failed or if the hydro-boost system failed. Most likely the power steering pump failed. How ever to be sure it should be tested first. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Hard pedal low stopping power


First you need to check the brakes lines and the brake pads must be replaced on your car they may be worn out........ Get it checked from the local service center........
