All depends on how the roters look need turning or not, or can be. Bad tires? greg
A good thing to do on brakes is go to a place that does brake repair. The big names will do a FREE inspection and tell you what is going on. It is 'safe' to do so. They usually won't do any work until authorized to. One exception is some places will tell you they are worn illegally and must be fixed (Les Schwab in the NW does this). Most don't, but remind them they are not law enforcement and tell them you'll do the job. Anyway--Sears, Firestone, Goodwrench, etc. will all give a free inspection and recc. what needs done. Sometimes you can just turn the rotors w/o new ones.
Warped brake rotors/drums.
worn front end parts (steering or suspension) could cause a car to shake when appling the brakes.
If a car shakes during acceleration the brake rotors may be damaged. If the rotors are damaged they will be unstable as the tires rotates making the whole car shake.
sounds like warpped rotors, might want to get your wheels balenced aswell sounds like warpped rotors, might want to get your wheels balenced aswell
No you dont have to. All I did was was pump the brakes with the car running
If the steering wheel shakes, but to car doesn't, when applying brakes - your front rotors are warped (if you have disc brakes)...if you have drum brakes, the drum could be cracked or the pads worn unevenly If the whole car shakes, and the steering wheel only seems to react to that, when applying brakes - see above statement, but apply to the rear end. If the whole car shakes, including the steering wheel - all four corners are bad, and you're an accident looking for a place to happen soon. In any case, go to your nearest service center ASAP.
If the car shakes when you press on the brakes, you probably have warpped brake rotors, and the squeak is probably some worn out front brake pads. I would have your rotors checked and either replaced (which Mercedes highly recommends or re-surfaced)
You need to check your brakes and rotors. Typically when the rotors go out it will make any car/ truck do that.
In general, warped brake rotors will cause a vehicle to shake when the brakes are applied. If the problem is severe, it will also have some impact on the ability of the driver to control the car when braking. If a car shudders or shakes when the brakes are applied but is otherwise smooth when driven, the brakes are a most logical cause. Use the link to the related question below to help you decide what to do if you suspect a warped brake rotor.
If you mean that the brakes "pulsate" when you apply light to moderate pressure... that's caused by a warped rotor. If a rotor overheats it will warp causing disk brake "chatter". Sometimes the rotors can be turned to make them "true" again, but often you need to replace the rotors. I generally do both front rotors at the same time so that there is no difference between the left and right brakes.
could be a couple things, but my moneys on your rotors. get your brakes and rotors changed, it always fixes my shake while braking lets not just spend money on something that may not be the problem, first up, check wheel bearings, second check wheel balance also need to have ball joints checked
When applying the brakes; if you feel the car jumping it's usually the brake rotors need "turned". And, all depending on the age of the rotors and how much your OLD brake pads have scraped them, you might need to buy new rotors. So, my answer is TURN or REPLACE brake rotors. <end>
You will need to change the brakes and rotors on the Honda Civic to see if that fixes them. If not, take the car to a mechanic and have them fix the problem.
If you mean when you are coming to a stop, and press on the brakes, you feel a vibration- this most likely means that your brake rotors are warped and need to be turned. If you mean you are already at a full stop, in idle, and you press the brake and feel a vibration- it may mean a vacuum problem in the engine or something like that. So it depends- is it your brakes vibrating, you feel it in the pedal? Or is it your engine suddenly running rough and the whole front end of the car shakes?
The front brakes and rotors on a 92 Hyundai excel need to function properly to insure that the car stops quickly. A front brake problem can cause an accident or personal injury.
You have a warped rotor. Remove the rotors and have them turned at a machine shop or replaced if it it too far gone to turned. Replace the brake pads at the same time.
sounds like your break rotors could be warped.
You need to have the cv joints looked at. That's happened in my dad's car before and he had to replace the cv joints.
warped rotors(brakes)...most likely front ones
Good question. You may have an antilock brake circuit that is not sensing the brakes correctly and improperly correcting. Anti lock pulses the brakes when you apply them. I don't know if this is perfected or not.
yes, but only when the brakes are applied.
It's either the brake pads or rotors. If you are a hard braker stopping at the last minute, or have frequent stops from highway speeds, your rotors can heat up to very high temps. When you park your car with smokin hot rotors they can warp as they cool because the spot where the pads sit will cool at a different rate than the rest of the rotor. This can be even worse if you drive through a puddle before you park the car. Have your pads changed, and your rotors either replaced or fixed.
you can do a visual check if you can see the pads and rotors or a hearing test while driving the car start coming to a stop if you hear a highpitched squeel you need new pads If there is a grinding sound when you step on the brake , you need pads and possibly rotors (depending on the damage) . To check your brakes you need to remove the tire and inspect the pads and rotor . If there is little or no "meat" left on the pad they need changing . If there is pulsing in the peddle when you depress the brakes the rotors may be warped from heat and need to be cut or replaced . Drum brakes require you to remove the tire and drumm to check the shoes .
The vehicle probably has warped brake rotors, resurface or replacement of brake rotors is necessary to cure that condition..
