    Tacoma just falls when i got to take from a dead stop it like cuts out then takes off what could cause this? If its a rolling take off it doesn't do it only from a dead stop. Also my breaks are staying on even after releasing the pedal and causing a load on the motor and loss of power as well as burning up the pads! would the power booster be causing this? I'm about to go buy a booster from the parts yard but i want to make sure that's it first before doing this.

    The brakes sticking would cause the loss of power at a dead stop. Your booster is what gives you "power" brakes. I think it is you master cylinder that is bad.

    before you go buy anything, take apart your calipers and make sure there not sticking..Lubricate all the moving parts, and see if it still does it.

    Fix one issue at a time. The brakes should be an easy problem to diagnose and fix. If fixing the brakes first doesn't fix the cut-out, then we will tackle that next.

    Ok i checked them out today it seems only the fronts stick the backs dont so what could cause this? i even went to advance auto and they said it was a bad caplier so i bought one for the passanger side and it still has the same issue :( i wasted 58 bucks on that thing :mad: so it has to be eather the booster or master clynder and ideas?

    UPDATE went to autozone and they said it was something like a Break Compstive Value or something like that and it was a little box thing located under the master cyl do u guys know what im talking about?
