Strange Toyota breaking problem
I had a problem when breaking my 2004 Toyota Camry (16K miles) at the red light at 45 m/hr. The car didn't stop so I switched to the low gear, the car finally stopped, but the brake pedal was pulsing, the sound was as if I hit the accelerator, and I felt the the engine pushes car ahead, so I had to press hard the brake pedal to keep the car stopped. However, immediately after that everything was normal.
The car is under warranty, so the Toyota dealership mechanics checked the brakes, lines, muster cylinder, leaks, etc. They didn't find any problems. They said that transmission and torque converter doesn't have any relation to that.
What caused the problem then? Torque converter? How can it be checked?
Could antilock break be on (oily spot) causing this stange behavior?
It's scary to drive the car now.
