This type of problem, I don't think it could be the hand brake system. The vehicle would battle to take off and there would be a smell from the rear brakes. Check the spark plug gaps, they should be 1.00mm. Check for fault codes in the computer box system. It sounds like this could be the oxygen sensor problem. There are a few guys who work in Humansdorp who might be cable to help you.

The handbrake was faulty if I drove a long-distance there was a smell but I did change the handbrake cables, I've checked the spark plugs and spark plugs is 1.00mm, I will go and check the oxygen sensor I really hope it worked because I can't understand because the my bakkie have really low mileage its got 104 000km on the clock
