Hi, my name is ***** ***** sounds like a bad diaphram inside the brake booster, if it is cracked, it causes a major vacuum leak and the engine will not run right, and the brakes will not work right, you could verify this by pinching off the large vacuum line to the brake booster, and start it cold and see if it runs properly, now you wont have power brakes if you try this, but it will verify that booster is causing this, can you try this?
