Just changed my front brake pads, now my car seems to have lost power / compression. At first I thought the brakes were jamming on, but it's a Nissan so has squeely brakes and I don't hear anything, also they aren't hot after a bit of a drive. I can get it up to about 45mph in 3rd / 4th but not higher.
It freewheels fine downhill.
The only thing I can possibly think of is that as I started to jack it up for the first side on the wishbone jackpoint, the car slipped. But there's nothing there that I can see for that to have damaged anything, and it was only as I first started to to jack it up, the jack came out from under the car freely.
