Engine revs and tries to lunges when applying the breaks

Post by Miller_82 » Wed May 22, 2019 4:50 pm

It doesn't do it all the time but when your applying the breaks to come to a stop some times the engin will rev and car lunges forward..I'm thinking it might be something with a vacuum line going from the booster to the throttle body.. any other advice is much welcomed and appreciated

More than likely you are “fat footing” the gas pedal when you hit the brakes

Agree with mmsstar, I have done this myself. Otherwise, you would need to clean your TB.
