My car is hesitant to accelerate. Is it brake issue?
I heard a squealing sound in my rear back of my car a month ago. I immediately took it to a dealer and found that my rear passenger side brake shoes need to be replaced. They gave me a higher quote so I took it to a nearby mechanic store and they did a diagnostic brake check for $35 and found that my rear brake drum needs to be replaced and adjusted and they took $240. Last week I found it hard to accelerate after braking at a traffic signal. I pushed the accelerator smoothly and heard a squishing noise. Why is this happening and why is it hard or hesitant to accelerate few times after releasing the foot from the brake?
Previously I had a master cylinder replaced as advised. I also had self-brake adjuster replaced another time while I was on a road trip. Infact, before I went for a road trip I got my car serviced and got it checked before I set off. I am vexed with this brake problem and service as its just costing money. Can anyone tell why is it hard to accelerate now or hesitant to accelerate after applying brakes?
Is this a good question?
