and then revs up but reluctantly. When idling or normal driving the engine runs excellent. It seems that the motor only acts this way when you want a sudden burst of power.
Can you advise a possible solution?

My son's wife owned the car before I did. This happened to her once. He thinks it was a sensor in the brake that was not registering that the brake pedal was pressed. Can this be replaced by a layman or do I need to take it to a repair shop? how much should it cost?

i was driving with the ac on and just stop , control lights are on but no air or any sound or noise? I stop the car turn the ac on and off and atill no air. one time as I was driving the air stop but after 5 seconds continued again ?

Go to crank the car, it cranks, the engine revs and the tach shows about 3800 rpm then bounces back down to 800. It shoots back up to 3800 when you barely press it. Put the car in gear and it surges repeatedly. Shutting the car off and restarting it seems to work, but sometimes it takes several tries for it to reset. This has happened 4 times in the past 7 months.

If you see my previous question just got the car a few days back and it overheated very after a few miles, they won't take it back, instead they are helping to fix it, I just bought a radiator and replaced it today, it seemed that the previous was fixed and when we cleaned it with acid it crack and poured water like a water fall. Now after changing the radiator, we tested it parked with the heater on and the car did not overheat. So we took it for a ride with the ac on and after 2 miles +/- the temperature jumped from mid to red in a second. The mechanic doesn't know what is it, he thinks might be the thermostat so I got a new one, he wont be able to put it on until tomorrow. I asked someone else and he said it sounds like an air pocket since is pushing water and air up through the reservoir lid. Some else said is a bad head that is getting worst by the minute, but the mechanic says that it doesn't show water on the oil and is not smoking and the car has lots of power like new. Another comment was that the fuel pump was bad, but the mechanic working on the car says that water is moving fine... we were hoping that it was the radiator. What can I do or should do?
