  1. Hi focus drops revs as though it is about to cut out then returns to normal when car stops or slows down to stop ie junctions . Had service sparks oil filter also used the good old forte cleaner anybody any ideas.
  2. Hi focus drops revs as though its going to cut out then returns back to normal when I come to a stand still ie junction. Had service plugs oil filter etc even used good old trusted forte cleaner . anybody any ideas were to start.

  4. Think the flexi pipe feeds the caliper . When you press brake the caliper closes but wouldnt release caliper when you take foot of brake , because the flexi pipe wasnt releasing the fluid out of system this was binding the brakes to disc due to the heat and the faster i was going the hotter the brakes became thats what the noise was. Had to have new pads as these were worn down new flexi and discs as they were warped cost £110 fitted. Im no mechanic think its the explanation my mate gave me or something like that.
  5. Hi had similar problem with my focus zetec ok at low speeds but when driving at speed had similar noise my mate had a drive and said it was brakes . Sure enough when he put it on ramps the offside front wheel didnt move freely took caliper of that was ok it was flexi pipe that was damaged . Mate sorted all brakes out now spot on no noise. Try jacking front up and try spinning wheels worth a try.
  6. Its always good to have a mate who knows his onions when it comes to cars only charged me for parts.
  7. Exactly what my mate said brake binding offside front damaged flexi pipe . Damaged pads and had new discs all ok now mate only charged me £100 all in .
  8. Possibly that may have been what it was and explains why I was getting increased revs sound mate said he will clean caliper and put some grease of some sort on and may be a case of some new pads. Cheers
  9. Having brakes checked on Friday so will have to see . My mate said same revs would have gone up if it was clutch . Said the faster ive gone the hotter brakes have become, so when ive tryed to accelerate they have become hotter and tightened holding back car against acceleration .
  10. When I got to my mates garage he had a drive to see what he thinks because I thought the same that it was clutch but having no problems whats so ever changing gears he believes it to be brakes sticking . I touched the offside front brake disc when he came back an to say it was hot was an understatement it actually melted skin on my fingers not at hot on near side front but still hot
  11. Hi wondered if anybody could help driving home on motorway I over took a car at about 60 all of a sudden the engine seemed to over rev as though accelerator was stuck without the rev counter moving any more than where it was causing aloud noise until I could get back to inside lane and reduce speed which eased noise eventually. Been told it could be caused by brakes sticking ie calapers anybody else had same problem. Cheers
