The majority of braking comes from your front brakes and this is likely the cause to the shaking when applying the brakes. I agree with fenrias, most likely the rotors. To replace the rotors and brake pads on these cars is cheap. If you plan on keeping the car for more than a few months, I would go ahead and change the rotors and pads for the front wheels. If you've changed them recently, than you may want to consider other options like alignment, including control arms or ball joints. Either way, braking is important and you should get it fixed for sure.

First one, your clutch might be slipping and need adjusting/replacement(I'm assuming it's a manual transmission), try getting it adjusted first. If you have an automatic, your fluid might be low or filter clogged.
Second one, most common cause of the vibration is warped or rough brake rotors. Sometimes a wheel alignment will help(you would be able to tell- if your front tires are worn unevenly)

My 1990 honda accord for some time has had the s(green) light blinking off and on, had it is solid S green and it seems as it won't shift gears, I don't have power like before? what happened?


The flashing s light means a transmission problem. The transmission computer is under the carpet on passenger side under where you put your feet. Pull down the carpet to see the diagnostic light. Turn on the key to count the flashes to get the code. Pulll a list of codes from the internet.
If your trans shifts properly if you manually shift it thru the gears, going from D1, D2 D3 but feels like it is starting in second when in drive at a stop, the computer is probably the issue, and can be repaired or exchanged for a good computer, lots of companies do this ,find 1 on the internet.

I have a 1990 honda accord ex and the gear shift keeps locking up and you have to use the key to unlock it on the shifter why is this what could be wrong?


If the car is an automatic, which it sounds like it is. There is nothing wrong with it, it locks the transmission shifter so no one can steal the car and so it won't move or roll.

You probably have a faulty sensor at the transmission.

Go to your local parts store, and they can give you the part and how to install it. It's pretty easy.
