Oil residue from a large leak can take a long time to burn off, but it should be OK after a few months. You may be smelling the tires, and you did say it smells like "burning rubber" so make sure the tires are not rubbing on anything.

SOURCE: engine shaking in the morning

Try getting your tire balaced as you ight have a tire that has seperated from the inner wall, as it sits overnight it will cool down then when you drive it the rubber sofens and the vibration will improve. I have had water in the tire too but i don't think thats your problem.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1995 volvo 850 glt station wagon's brakes make car shake when wet

Hello,
That's good News! it means your A.B.S. system is working correctly, I know what you mean as it frightened me the first time in my 960, made a gruff gruff grinding noise and pulsing through the footbrake pedal, I drive a B.M.W. touring and in the recent snow I was pleased to feel a similar thing.
Hope this takes out your worries!
As for the smell, have your brakes examined for wear.

2001 Mercury Sable with a 3.0 "S" engine code. Engine idols up and down when I put on any of the climate controls.. Why is that?


Perform a Idle speed control valve cleaning and a throttle valve cleaning, use throttle valve spray cleaner only (available at any auto parts store for about $5). After cleaning disconnect the battery negative cable for 5 minutes to facilitate an idle speed relearn.

You have to have power to your brake switch for your shifter interlock to work. I would check the brake fuse and make sure you are getting power to the brake switch located on the pedal assembly under the steering column.

Wheelbarrow on 201 mercury sable


The possibilities are depending on whether you hear the sound in the front or back of the car: You have a broken brake pad in the front or a broken brake shoe in the back; there is a bad wheel bearing that needs to be replaced, there is a flat spot on one of your tires.

Shaking front wheel when braking. Mecury Sable 2001 front wheel drive


If the front wheel shakes only when you apply the brakes, the most likely cause is a warped brake rotor. The rotor can be "turned" to make it flat and true again, but it will most likely warp again since it will be thinner and it gets hot when you apply the brakes. I normaly replace them and they are about $35.00.

2001 MERCURY MOUNTAINEER V8 DRIVES PERFECT UNTIL 60 MPH STEERING WHEEL SHAKES..THEN AT 70 MPH CAR SHAKES...BUT NO NOISE...WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?JUST BOUGHT IT YESTERDAY...DROVE IT 15 MILES AND PARKED...


This is often the result of a tire that is out of balance. Check for bubbles on any of the tires and have the tires balanced. That should clear up the problem.

Car Shakes


Certainly sounds like a partially, or seized caliper hanging up, which has warped rotor. What exactly did they replace at brake job, do you know? Either way they need to be rechecked.

Rough idle


Mercury had a recall on 3.0 duratech motors in 2000 and 2001. If you get a fuel smell at startup then you might have a bad lower intake gasket, it could cause a miss if seal is cracked. Article No. 01-4-3 you can get it on AllData.

Also, check the PC rubber L piece that runs from the PVC valve to under the throttle control - it could be busted.

Make sure ignition wires are not cracked. If you haven't tuned it up in over 30-40K consider doing that.
