Hey trigga, would you be a little more specific regarding details please?

Does it feel perhaps like your brakes are sticking?

How do you know that it is'nt due to a tune-up issue of some sort?

Does it occur at any time you brake and then accelerate or only when the car is either hot or cold?

The more information you can provide us, the better chance we have of helping you resolve your issue.
