If it is coming out of the front, it sounds like a loose brake caliper, or loose brake pads. I would get it looked at asap.

sounds like disk was overheated and neads to be turned down. It usaually can be done once or twice before it needs replaced. If you ride the brakes or, going downhill hold the breaks and don't allow them ot cool. it'll overhead the rotor and they'll warp. Kind of like a clutch plate in a manual transmission.

It'll caost around $100.00 for rotor and disk pads for the front end.

ok it may be simplar than that! my 91 Mazda did the same thing. if you car has (ABS) brakes then it may be the relay. mine was out; replaced it and now it stops.

answer sounds like your rotars are out of round or cracked. to check this , remove wheel , look at rotars blue spots will indicate overheating and distotrion most cracks are visable

What slows the car?

Applying the brakes.

If you are applying the brakes on your bicycle are you slowing down or are you accelerating?

Using brakes slows your speed.

Do you know what to do if your car brakes go out while you are driving?

If your brakes go out while driving, first shift the vehicle into neutral and then apply the emergency brake. If neither of these slows the vehicle, turn on your safety lights and get into the right lane.

What causes thumping sound from rear wheel while braking that slows as car slows and no thumping if braking while in reverse even happens after installing brand new rotors and pads?

You should have someone pull off the hubs and check your bearings to see if they need to be replaced or just repacked

What force is used to slow down a bike?

strength New: The force of friction. When you apply the brakes, they grip the wheel, creating friction, which slows down the spinning.

You have a 97 Ford F-150 When the brakes applied there's thump when it slows down to about 20mph its consistent worn brakes the cause or other?

worn brakes could be the cause or check the A frame bushings

When Maggie applies the brakes of her car the car slows unifromly from 15.4 meterspersecond to 0 ms in 2.46 s How many meters before a stop sign must she apply the brakes in order to stop at the sign?

You have given us the rate of deacceleration when Maggie applies the brakes of her car but at what velocity is Maggie travelling before the stop sign? Alternatively; having ceased all movement by applying the brakes of her car the question has no relevance.

What are the applications of increasing friction?

When friction increases, the object slows down. It can be used in, f. ex, brakes.

What part of a car slows it down?

"Brakes" make the whole car slow down.

Why does the brakes get hot when a car slows down?

Friction causes the heat.

What force slows car hitting the brakes?

Generally speaking for cars that have "disk brakes", friction slows the car. When the driver presses down on the brake pedal the brake calipers squeeze the brake pads against the brake rotor inside each car wheel causing the car to slow down by friction.

When is friction necessary?

Friction slows something down, so you'll need it when you drive the car (the brakes apply friction to the tires and you stop) and when you hold onto something (your hands apply friction to a credit card, thus enabling you to hold it), among others. You don't need it in some machinery (lubricants and bearings), among others.

Does the brake pedal control the front or rear brakes?

Both, but there's a built in bias that makes the front brakes engage faster and harder. As the car slows down its weight shifts towards the front wheels, so if both front & rear were braked evenly hard the rears would lock up and cause the car to spin out.

How does friction apply to running?

It slows your speed down every time your feet touch the ground.

How do you say brake in Chinese?

煞車 [sha che]. It can be referred to as the device that slows the vehicle down, or the action to activate the brakes.

What happens to the speed of a motor car when brakes are gently applied?

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.

What is a brake rotor?

A brake rotor is what your brake pads squeeze to slow your car down. The brake pads are mounted in a caliper. When you apply the brakes, the caliper pushes the brakes into the rotor, which then slows down your wheel.Hi, It is a brake rotor, and is the physical disc of a disc brake. Peace, crigbyThe brake rotor is the disk part. Should be shiny from where the brake pads have been rubbing on it.

Does Drag always makes objects go faster?

No, drag actually slows the object down but thrust makes it go faster.

What effects does a cigarette smoke have on the cilia?

Its makes the cilia sluggish which slows down how it works.

What will slamming on the brakes after a tire blows out result in?

It will result in an uncontrolled skid - possibly overturning the vehicle. The best action on a blow-out is to lightly 'tap' the brakes in short, rapid movements. This slows the vehicle to a stop - while allowing the driver to keep control.

Give you an example in which acceleration is against the direction of motion?

Brakes are applied while the car is travelling north. Acceleration is toward the south, car slows down.

What is ABS in cars?

ABS stands for anti-lock braking system. the idea is that when you depress your brakes hard the car slows quickly but the wheels do not lock up.
