Mein Auto:

Resently every now and then while applying the breaks they momentarily go to the floor (scaring the bagezies out of me and then i pump them and they come back. They seem to grab. I thought maybe it was the equalizing system but the light isnt on when this happens. Any ideas/ thoughts???

It could be a number of things but it sounds like there could be air in your brake lines.

You may need to bleed the brakes to get the air out. This is possibly the cheapest solution.

It maybe something else but try bleeding the brakes first and see if that will fix your issue.
