Car excelling while my foot is on the brake.

Asked by GuruHQ33G Jul 28, 2019 at 02:19 AM about the 2008 Chevrolet Malibu

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Chevy Malibu. When I come to a stop
light I will brake. While waiting for the light change
I feel a push from my car. The gauges go up while
the car is on idle. I took it to autozone they said its
my air intake? Is this a senor or hose problem?

If you have a vacuum leak, the engine will run a little faster when you stop because the idle air controller raises RPM's to compensate for the lower idle speed due to the leak.
