Question about 2006 Jeep Wrangler

Shakes and screams while breaking

My son's '06 Wrangler X shakes and screams when breaking at 40mph going down the mountain. He said it only happens when it's hot. I've taken it to a mechanic who checked the brakes nothing wrong actually they're brand new. Took it to the Jeep dealer they ran a diagnostic on the computer and it didn't find anything wrong, the dealer wanted to change the rotors on the front and adjust the back but I know the brakes are fine and nothing needs replaced on them. His dad dogged it this weekend and I drive like my son does and we can't get it to do it. My son said it has happened several times. His dad seems to think it's wheel hopp. It does not have ABS
Any help would be appreciated.

Well it sounds to me that the front rotors are warped and when they get hot thats when you feel the vibration or shaking. i would change the rotors on the front

Car shaking on start-up... slight temperature problem

Could be plug fouling out from leaky fuel injector flooding engine when you shut it down, then clears after running some, however, running hot is not a good sign and could point to head gasket leak. Many other possibilities too, but I would start with examination of spark plugs.

2000 lincoln continental screams when started what's wrong.

It's probably one of the belts that is defected or needs to be replaced. When are car screams when being started 99% of the time it's a belt. Try that and see what happens

When going down a mountain and hitting the brakes to slow down, the steering wheel shakes back and forth. I had the front end aligned, wheels balanced, and new front tires.

Sounds like warped rotors, If you hit a large puddle of water with hot rotors this
can happen or if you use excessive brake. Best to have the rotors turned and new
pads installed. (I use organic pads to reduce rotor wear but many shops do not
like to use them) The organic pads are softer and wear out sooner but you really want
to have the brake system serviced annually under ideal circumstances.
Hope this is useful.
