I have owned a Ford Escort Wagon and now a Ford Taurus Wagon.
Here is the problem that I have:
Both vehicles when going down a steep type of mountain hill for about
10-20 minutes, the brakes would smell really bad and the I would not
have good brakes. I pulled over for 5-10 minutes and it seems the
brakes went back to normal. This happened with both cars. I use the
brakes normally down the hill. I took it to a mechanic who told me
that the brake fluid heats up and then when I wait for 5-10 minutes it
cools down. Does anyone know what could be happening here?
