Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

It sounds as if you're actually describing a transmission related issue. It appears that you're describing the transmission slipping when taking off from a stop, which would either be caused by internal transmission failure or low fluid level. There is a very good chance that the fluid is low enough that the pump is sucking air when you're braking and the fluid sloshes forward in the pan.

Can you describe exactly what is happening?
