Break Problem

Everyonce in awhile when I brake the car doesnt stop. It slows down to about 5 mph and wont stop no matter how hard I press the brake pedal. I have to let off and apply again. I am really terrified of this if my brakes happen to fail on me.

Typically we need make, model, if the car has ABS, etc. to know what to "look for" when reading a post.

With that said, there can be many issues such as worn master or wheel cylinders/capliers, hydraulic leaks. This type of issue needs to be evaluated and fixed NOW before someone gets hurt or killed in an accident caused by faulty brakes.

does the pedal go to the floor, or do you have a hard pedal? brake fluid level? can you lock them up under any conditions? did it pull at all before?

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.
Alex
