I own a Ford Focus ZX4 LE 2.0 engine. This is on my Android so bullet points are not available. But I would explain as good as I can.
-The problem I have is when I drive anywhere either on the highway or regular road.
The brakes would get tight and make my speed diminish quickly. It doesn't happen often. Once in a while usually happens in the heat during the day.
What happens is that the brakes get tight like it doesn't know my foot is off the pedal and still brakes slowly When it hits 40 it would advance more than that. If it does I would be forcing the transmission but when it goes over 50 then when I let go of the accelerator goes back down quick (could cause an accident if someone is tailgating me )
- the brake pedal is hard when this happens
-doesn't go more than 40 if I let go of the accelerator it would slow down quick like if I were braking
-this happened recently my mechanic said the wheel baring or "arm" he called it is loose making a click sound when I hit a pothole I'm not sure if that could be the cause
-smoke comes out of the brakes when I'm driving I'm guessing because of the friction
-my mechanic gave up on me and my car xD
I've changed the caliper , breaks and even the brake disk two times.
could it be the brake line ? Or the caliper isn't on correctly ?
