something is loose . try tighening every motor mount bolt and frame bolt .gm jim Probably the repair technician was not completely qualified to repair transmissions and was just a "friend" of the family or something and didn't do the job right. You should probably have brought the car to someone who specializes in transmissions and has a good rep. As far as the sound goes, does it happen all the time or just on 280 going up the big hill. There are some Aamco transmission shops near Rockaway so you could drop it off before work. Hope this helps..... Check to see if the engine is properly aligned. If it is too far to one side or the other, the CV joints can cause noises. Improper alignment can also cause major damage to the CV joints. Have the U-joints been damaged? Properly reassembled?

Kinetic friction is the force that stops a train when the brakes are applied

User Avatar

When you push the pedal further to make your car stop. When you hear a grinding noise when brakes are applied. When the vehicles pulls left or right when brakes are applied. When the brake fluid reservoir is low or empty. When you feel a pulsation in the brake pedal when brakes are applied. When the brake pedal feels mushy when brakes are applied.

The driver suddenly applied the brakes.

User Avatar

The answer depends on the mass of the train and the force applied by the brakes.

User Avatar

It depends on a number of factors, how fast the train is going the moment the brakes are applied, how much gross weight the train is hauling, and how much pressure on the brakes are applied.

No.Applied is the past form of the verb apply:I applied the brakes but nothing happened.Or the past participle applied can be used as an adjective:applied physics, applied mathematics, etc

Assuming we are talking about "S" cam air brakes on a truck, check the angle at the end of the slack adjuster to the actuator rod coming out of the air brake can when brakes are applied, it should be 90 degrees, if the slack adjuster is manual adjust it with the brakes not applied and then test again. If they are automatic slack adjusters and you do not have 90 degrees with brakes applied it is worn out or not installed correctly.

Sounds like, at the very least, you damaged the caliper piston seals. The calipers will have to be replaced or rebuilt.

Have the front rotors turned on a lathe at a dealership. check brakes and rotors

User Avatar

This is probably due to worn brake rotors on the brakes, if there is no vibration when driving then this will be the cause.

A pulsating brake pedal when brakes are applied,

User Avatar

Your vehicle is equipped with abs and anti lock brakes, when applied hard enough the system interprets it as a panic stop and pulses the brakes to prevent lock up and skidding.

User Avatar

In normal use this is not a problem, as the brakesare applied with limited force and ..... Disc brakesare used mainly on mountain bikes ridden off-road.

User Avatar

When brakes partially applied, or works the air craft slips forward, when brakes are applied fully and anti skid detector fails the air craft skids.

Air pressure within the air braking system of a tractor-trailer (or large truck) is what prevents the brakes from being applied. The pressure of the air pushes back a large spring at each wheel. The large spring will apply the brakes when there is no pressure in the system. When the driver steps on the brake pedal, air is released out of the system and the brakes are applied. When the driver's foot comes off the brake pedal, air is quickly pumped back into the system and the brakes are released. Disconnecting the air line has the same effect on the trailer's brakes. Air is released from the system, and the brakes are applied. It is not the brakes themselves that lock. Application of the brakes causes the wheels to lock.

The power brake booster is shot.

A car slowing down when the brakes are applied.

User Avatar

yes, but only when the brakes are applied.

User Avatar

Assuming that the brakes are not "dragging" they start exerting force on the wheels when they are applied by the engineer.

User Avatar

The speed of the motor vehicle is gently slowed down. The more aggressive the brakes are applied the faster the vehicle slows down eventually coming to a full stop.

User Avatar

I would say a vacumn leak. Check hoses, measure vacumn with running at idle and at idle when brakes applied. This assumes you have power brakes and it idles well without the brakes applied. Please make sure that the clutch is working properly... Does your clutch work properly?

User Avatar

Vibration when applying brakes is most likely warped rotors. Another cause could be loose caliper bolts.
