After I start my car, when I put my foot on the brake to put it into gear, the car dies. Sometimes it will start back up sometimes it won’t.

  1. Most likely cause for this would be a vacuum leak. You may find that if you mash on the gas pedal when trying to restart the engine that it will start easier.

    First place to look for a vacuum leak is the hose at the PCV valve. (most common)

    Of course if you have a check engine light on, by all means pull the codes and post them back in the comments below.

    let me know what you find.
