its a 94 ford tempo (not my car) when i have tha brake pressed and am in "drive" and hold tha brake wit tha car idling it starts to kinda want to die out (like its chokin or some shit). tha car had tha exact same problem last year except it waz alot worse. tha car would just stall when ur driving and u brake or just slow down. its not as bad this time but it seems like tha problem is gonna get bigger. last year tha car just had a tune up and it got fixed. any1 kno wuts wrong wit this car and how to fix it???

Idle it up a little, should help until you find the problem.

it loads the motor up, and if its running boarderline, it can cause it to stall...

think about it, the car wants to roll, even at idle, and youre using the brakes to keep it from doing so...

fuel filter could be causing it too. This is why I hate any car made past 1973. Its can be anything, and it always ends up being the most expensive thing.

if it has a brake booster turn your car on and press the brakes down if you hear a hiss and then the peddle goes down than its the the brake booster if it doesnt follow the vacume line and check the plastic ends they might be plugged up

USUALLY WHEN THE BOOSTER HISSES IT MEANS ITS BAD AND THAT WOULD CAUSE IT TO START TO DIE
