the question is-- was you foot on the brake at home or was just the hand brake applied
when driving , slowing , stopping standing , all have the foot on the brake which is activating a brake booster and if that is faulty , the vacuum leak causes the problem

Back Firing, low idle while in drive, choking and dying


Check your fuel pressure, the regulator is on top right where the fuel lines connect to the fuel rail.

Idles fine cold/ when it wamrs up it dies 1986 4x4 gmc suburban


This is only a suggestion because it worked for me. With a cool engine, use a can of store brand carb cleaner and spray the heck out of it. Get it into the linkage well and let it sit for up to and hour or so....stuff some rags on the intake manifold to soak up the excess. Then, after letting it sit, get your 'Burb up to operating temp. Should be the ticket for you....and no, your engine won't catch fire.

Car dies when in drive


dear friend should your vehicle idle below 1000 RPM it is possible for your vehicle to cut as the idle drops to low,find the compensating valve and your problem is solved.
