Any problem with the braking system of your vehicle makes your vehicle unsafe to drive, and you need to get competent help for it immediately. If you have a pulsing sensation as you drive, it's possible that the rotor is already warped or not mounted correctly. This isn't a hard fix; just replace it, and take care in getting it back on the hub correctly. Make sure there's no runout on the hub, and that the front wheel bearing or wheel carrier isn't shot. It is also possible that you have an ABS failure. The sensor might be bad, or the pump or computer might have a problem. You might try disconnecting the ABS pump and seeing if the problem persists. Note that driving with the ABS pump disabled radically changes the way the car handles, and you should be very careful on such a test drive.

The terminology for this system is ABS (anti-lock braking system). This prevents wheels from locking while braking heavily. The reson behind this is that when a wheel is locked, it cannot steer, which can lead to accidents. The point of ABS is not reduce the braking distance, but to alllow this vital steering while emergency braking.

pulsating effect The Abs equipped cars do this naturally older cars with abs you will notice it more so than newer models..
