Abs is the cars way to keep tires from skidding out of control by use of a computer and speed sensors on each wheel. If system is bad could cause problems your having.

Yes your mechanic should be able to fix.

does it typically cause a smell? because my car has a smell when it happens, and also my ABS light isn't on

Clean or change the catlatic converter.
