My 2008 Ford Focus dies when I brake hard.

Asked by Feb 23, 2017 at 10:36 PM about the 2008 Ford Focus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I have to hit the brakes hard my 2008 Ford Focus shutters and dies, can anyone tell me what I need to do to fix it?

1 Answer


I'm not sure on what the fix is, but it is more than likely the brake power assist booster robing all the vacuum, air from the engine. There may be a problem with this, but I would have someone look at it to see if it is normal or not. I can create the same thing on my '95 Chevy and everything is new,
