Hello
Welcome to FY,
If breaks were just replaced, i would check the calipers and hand brake cables for something dragging.
I also would check the fuel system to see if you need a fuel filter or a leaking injector for the sluggish problem.

My 1995 dodge v10 just quit while running driving it. It started up but would barley run. t would not move. seemed to be starving for fuel. Then quit . The next day the truck started right up and I was...


I once had a 302 ford van that ran really bad going up a hill and I thought the transmission was dying. Turned out that my catylitic converter had broken apart and clogged so the truck wasn't exhausting at all. This will make a vehicle hard start and run bad, so make sure you feel the exhaust for pressure. Seems silly, I know but I've been there.
