When you come to a stop and then you press on the gas to go why would your car jerk almost as if you were pressing on the brake?

You could be pressing the brake pedal too hard. Another reason why it may jerk is because the pull brake is engaged.

The brake light in the dash would be on because the emergency brake is on. If you mean the brake lights in the back, this would be because you are pressing the brake peddle or something is broken.

It would be the rubber pad that sits on your brake pedal. Unless they were referring to brake pads, which are the pads which enables your vehicle to stop by pressing the brake pedal.

The first thing that I would do is look at the arm of the brake pedal and make sure the arm is pressing against the brake switch, press the brake pedal with your hand and see if the switch head goes in. Also if you have someone with you have them watch the brake lights and use 2 fingers and press the head of the switch in and ask if the brake lights are on,it may be that the switch is bad. this would be step 1. depending on how old the vehicle is you may have a broken 12 volt wire or a ground wire, if your turn signals work and your taillights work I would first check the brake light switch. i have never seen 2 brake light bulbs go bad at the same time.

Air in the brake system. You need to bleed the air out of the system.

You may have a bad power brake vacuum operated booster.

there's not hand brake. what you would find is a pedal brake in the bottom left of the driver side. Witch you press down to apply it, and press down again to release it. Hope this help you.

No the chocolate chips would clog the pressing machine.

If you mean that you can't shift the shifter while pressing on the brake, I would say that it is down by the brake pedal.

Check for a loose fuse, check your wiring, check the connections, sounds like something is loose. Also make note as to when it turn off, are pressing the brake? using the turn signal? I had a firebird that every time I press the brake the signal lights would turn on and the radio would turned off, that turned out to be I used the wrong bulb in my brake lights

I would say your power brake booster is shot.

User Avatar

When you hit the brake hard 2 times in less than 3-4 seconds it is normal, because the pump doesn't have enough time to build up pressure. If there are at least 3-4 seconds between the first and the second pressing of the pedal and you still have this problem, may be the pump isn't working well.

sounds like you installed after market spoiler? then wired to a continuous hot source instead of splicing into brake line witch would be intermittently only when pressing on peddle!

User Avatar

Out of adjustment. Adjust the mounting of the switch so the brakes lights are off until you press the brake pedal.

User Avatar

Most likely it is either the brake light switch, under the dashboard, connected to the brake pedal or the turn signal switch inside the steering column.

User Avatar

No, only if you reduce the speed so much that the engine can't keep running in the current gear.If you brake hard, you would clutch.

User Avatar

The power brake booster is leaking vacuum and that makes the engine die when the brakes are applied. Replace brake booster.

If there is no response on pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del, I would keep pressing the power switch down until the laptop switches off, then press the power switch once to begin restarting the laptop again.

Press "+" then "3" then "=", and keep pressing "=" repeatedly as many you like, each time the total will increase by 3.

Well, when it comes to brake shoe repair. I think that the internet has almost everything there is on it for you when you are looking. I would go to YouTube first.

User Avatar

press the gas all the way down when stopped if that dose not work press gas down hard for a while and press the brake hard (watch out you might flip!).

User Avatar

Could possibly be Antilock Brake System kicking in (most people don't notice this unless they are pressing the brakes exceptionally hard) Another possibility is that the brake rotors could be warped.

Apply the parking brake,but not the driving brake, is the noise there? apply the brake,if the noise is only present when the brake is applied I would assume it is the anti-lock brake system. Get your VIN # of the vehicle and call a ford dealer and give them the # and ask if there are recalls for your vehicle. There are a few for this one but it depends on the vin. There is a anti-lock brake recall, but as I said it depends on where it was made if it falls under the recall.
