Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers

1) odometer has nothing to do with what you describe. I am thinking vacuum leak, when you apply brakes the vacuum consumed by the booster overwhelms the system and stalls the motor

Best Answer

May have issue with transmission converter. Mine did the same thing off and on, Change filter and transmission fluid. problem gone.
