Pressing Brake Almost Stalls Engine

Recommended Posts

My car has now started to almost stall when i press brake, i can hear a hissing noise coming from around the brake servo under bonnet.

Does this mean it knackered.

It could be the diaphrams bust, but just make sure that there are no leaky vacuum hoses first, particularly ones connected to the engine...

I would be inclined to agree. Dont rule out a faulty alternator, or drive belt as well. Im saying that, as braking reduces engine speed, and revs, and therefore alternator spin. If you hear the hissing inside the car, this is normal for servos, just make sure pedal hardens up after engine turned off, and pedel pumped a few times
