4 time ASE certified tech here, warped front brake rotors will make your brake pedal pulsate and steering wheel shake when braking. most noticed when moderate braking at 40 - 50 mph.

Pulsation in brake pedal when stopping? yes and also a shake or shimmy in the steering wheel when brake. your brakes may also chatter

You rotors are warped and will need replaced/resurfaced.

You have warped rotors. They will need to be removed and trued or replaced. Causes of this are lug nuts overtightened, or heat from heavy braking at high speeds.

you steering wheel starts shaking because you probably have warped roders your shaking will get worse at higher speeds and when pressing the brake

This is usually a symptom of excessive run-out (warped) on front brake rotor or rotors.

Front rotors could be warped. Replace

Do you have anti lock brakes that might be it if not your rotors maybe warped

Warped rotors. Driving using the left foot to brake causes the rotors to heat up. Quenching the hot rotors by driving thru water will cause them to warp. The warped rotors cause the pedal to pulsate.

Probably warped brake rotors. They can be removed and resurfaced or replaced with new ones.

The rotors are out of round, WARPED. Need to have them turned and replace pads too.

The front rotors are out of round or warped, Need to have the rotors turned.

Tires,inner tie rod bushings, if the steering wheel shakes when brakes are applied - brake rotors warped.

User Avatar

One or both front brake rotors warped.(overheated) take off and have both re-surfaced ("turned") or if beyond 'trueing-up' then replace them both. About 25.00 ea. (new)

The steering wheel shimmering could be warped front rotors, when slowing down. The stalling when slowing down could be a bad fuel filter.

It could be your rims are bent. Or it could be the rotors are warped

For the brakes, check for warped rotors. For the turning, check for worn CV joints.

It could be one of the following: 1. Tires are out of balance, 2. Perhaps one or both tires may wobble. 3. Brake rotors may have warped.

Most likely warped brake discs

The most likely cause is a warped rotor. It can also be other things so have you brakes and suspension inspected.
