Hi.
the most likely cause is a damaged vacuum pipe between the inlet manifold, and the brake servo unit.
this would account for the missing and idling, due to the extra air getting into the engine.
it will also account for the brake hardness as there will be no vacuum to the servo unit.

the pipe is probably between 1/2" and 3/4" diameter and go from the inlet manifold to the brake servo unit on the bulkhead. make sure this pipe is not split or damaged and it is connected securely at both ends.

it is possible that the manifold gasket is leaking, but it would be very unusual for this to happen unless the manifold has been disturbed

apply a light force to the gas pedal and start the car continuing to regulate the rpms with gas pedal if you can make the car idle with the gas pedal then you will probably need a new idle air control valve

It sounds like you may have a vacuum leak. Your car should normally idle at about 700-750 RPM. You said that yours was at about 1000-1500, that is waaay to high. If you have a leak somewhere in the system the car will draw in extra air and it will want to idle much higher and will also be very erratic and hard to drive.

If you took the filter out does it still die ? if it doesn't then replace it if its dirty you should replace it anyway a dirty air filter effects gas mileage as far as it dieing and if the filter wasn`t the problem then it could need a tune up. The timing chain may also be getting week

Stalling automatic


You need to clean the throttle body and idle air bypass valve with spray carb cleaner, hold the idle high while you do this as the engine will try to stall, disconnect battery when done for 5 minutes then reconnect and drive a few days to relearn idle strategy.
