It may be your rotors are worn.
The caliber bolt or bolts may also have become stuck, if this is the case your brakes may vibrate when you stopping the car. You may need a caliper repair kit, caliper grease, new pads and possibly new rotors.

Whats wrong when teh hand brake light comes on when driving

Parking brake may not be fully released. In some vehicles it can also be an indication of something wrong with the braking system. You can also check your owners manual to see if it says anything about this.

1999 Honda Civic LX Stalling/Overheating!!!

(I don't know much about cars so bear with me).

I've had problems of overheating previously where my car's thermostat would hit 140. I think I've fixed the issue, I've replaced the thermostat but it was still doing that and 2 hoses blew and needed to be replaced. I've had to consistently fill my radiator with 50/50 antifreeze on a daily basis to ensure it won't overheat, so far that seems to be keeping the peace.

But now as of 5 days ago, I'm experiencing these new issues of stalling. Upon taking my civic into my mechanic, his meter showed that there was a misfire in the 2nd cylinder a month prior and now all 4 are misfiring. He thought it was the head gasket at first. I had just recently replaced the spark plugs with NGK Platinums, new spark plug wires and a new distributor cap.

I've received many possible culprits to my problem consisting of possibly the Throttle Position Sensor, Fuel Filter/Injection, Distributor or a radiator cap. I'm financially strapped at the moment and only could afford the radiator cap which didn't solve anything, however my radiator is running on 80% water at the moment. I'm really at a loss and I feel like I've done what I could and I'm at my wits end. Please help my poor little Civic cheat death for a little longer.

I got a lexus is 200 03 plate when I press brakes the steering wobbles what's causing it to do that ?

One possible cause of vibrations in a car's wheel is an uneven tightening of the rotors. In that case, you should get yourself to a mechanic who knows how to tighten in a star pattern. This is an elementary concept that any mechanic worth his or her salt should know. Most will also have a torque stick to measure the tightness of the seal. Keep in mind that every car has its own standard torque specifications, which are generally printed on the rotor itself.

More often, a steering wheel that shakes when braking is caused by warped rotors, which your mechanic may be able to diagnose with a simple test -- that is, by spinning the rotors by hand to feel for imperfections. A rotor in good working order should move freely and make a complete revolution without any bumps or signs of resistance areas. If you or your mechanic does notice these issues, you've probably got yourself a rotor problem.

In all honesty either have a mechanic look at your brakes and possibly get your rotors and brake pads replaced.

Break light keeps coming on, but the breaks are fine, what could be wrong?

Hang on...

Yeah, ok, I've just realised that we're talking about two different things. When I posted my clarification request, I thought you were talking about your brake lights.

You mean the brake warning, yes?
Right, in which case, how do you know the brakes are fine? Has a qualified mechanic checked them out? If so, then you've got a dodgy connection there. If not, I'd say the brakes aren't fine and do need looked at.

I have an 02 Chevy Trailblazer and I'm having a

It sounds like your brake powerbooster is going out. If it has a vacuum leak or a seal that is bad it will loose the boost part of the brakes and basically comes to manual braking. It sounds as if the seal behind the diaphram, the side closest to the driver is bad allowing the vacuum from the engine to basically put the brakes on. Good luck and let me know.

My 2002 grand prix has failed the NJ inspection now for the 6th time. They keep telling me I have to drive it a 'few more miles" in order for the Evaporative System & Oxygen Sensor to...

What you are experiencing is this.
Your computer in your car runs on "Drive Cycles". Each separate time you start your car you enter a new drive cycle. In order for the Evaporative and the Oxygen to activate the drive cycle must be long enough and far enough to get all the systems up to the right temperatures. This could take up to 15 miles of continuous driving.
What your problem sounds like is you are not driving your car long enough the very day you have it inspected.
What you did last week cannot effect a new drive cycle today. For each cycle is independent of the others.
Try driving it longer than you have in your previous attempts of inspection.
Best Wishes,

I have a 2006 chevy colbalt and every time I press on the brakes to slow down, it sounds as if I have worn out brake pads, but I ve had them checked and there fine, has anyone eles experienced any type of...

If your car still has the original brake pads, I would think it is past due for a brake job. In order to check the brakes for wear, the brake caliper must be removed and the brake pads removed for inspection. If you had the brakes inspected by a mechanic, did he drive the car to listen to the noise? To continue to drive the car with the noise is not a good idea. If it is your brakes, the problem will continue to get worse. A good mechanic will not send you out in a car that has noisy brakes and tell you they are fine. If a proper and thorough brake inspection was done, and it was determined that the brakes are ok, then the mechanic should strive to locate the source of the noise or refer you to someone who can find out what the problem is.
