Whenever I press the brakes my car starts to jerk and then it cuts off. This happens when im slowing down to a red light or on the freeway driving. I just had the transmission rebuilt as well and my timing belt and the water pump replaced.
Do you

Hi rawright05,

Thank you for the donation.

Engine stalling during braking are usually cuased by vacumn leakages as the system incorporates an Air Flow Meter.

1. Check the brake booster for vacumn leakages.
2. Check the idling speed.
3. Check for other vacumn leakages.

Does the Check engine Light indicates while engine is running?
Did you try to retrieve for trouble codes?
