brakes don't work when first turning on the car and at slow speeds, also tachometer revs up and down at certain speeds, usually 30-40mph

Customer: 121k, original brakes I believe, but may have had new pads at some point
JA: What is the model/year of your Hyundai?

JA: Are you fixing your Matrix yourself? What have you tried so far?

Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help you. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your input to my questions so I may help you better. I read your question and notes and have a question before we start. Have you got or can get a vacuum gauge? What your describing is perhaps a loss of vacuum at low speeds You can check all your vacuum hoses for leaks and cracks to start.
