What causes a car to shake while braking going 80 kilometers per hour?
If a car is shaking when the brakes are being applied, it is likely that the front end is out of alignment. The tie rod ends or shocks could also need replacing.
You may also find that the brake rotors are warped.
If it only happens when you are braking I would suspect warped brake rotors. Other reasons the front end could shake would include unbalanced tires or the vehicle needing realignment. Whatever the case may be; driving a car in this condition is unsafe and you should repair it or have it repaired before you drive it again.
Not if no shake or bounce upon braking, grooves in rotor shorten pad life,if braking is smooth just pads wore out, put a fresh set on don`t look back Not if no shake or bounce upon braking, grooves in rotor shorten pad life,if braking is smooth just pads wore out, put a fresh set on don`t look back Not if no shake or bounce upon braking, grooves in rotor shorten pad life,if braking is smooth…
This would normally be down to either: Warped Brake Discs (in some counties these are called Rotors) where there is a small ripple in the surface of the disc. This causes the brake pads (which are flat) to make intermittant contact with the surface which causes a vibration. This "warping" is not always visible to the naked eye. Worn or Perrished suspension compnents. This can lead to the wheels moving around in an unctrolled manner…
How do you fix the vibration at high speed and its steering wheel shake when braking just at high speed?
I have 98 4 cyliner automatic Toyota Camry. When I'm coming to a red light, and when I'm braking, the car begins to shake, and the shake doesn't stop even when the car is stopped. Howeverif i switch the transmission from drive to neutral, the car stops shaking. If I switch back to Drive or reverse, it car starts to shake again. What could be wrong?
Most times it is because the brake drums or rotor sufaces are warped by overheating and need regrinding to remove the uneven high spots. Also if on an older car they may have been ground so often they are thin and warp easily - and need replacement. High speed and frequent hard braking causes overheating
