First i would check the brake pads and rotors.
the rotors could be warped causing ticking noise and shuddering from the the wheels.

Worst case scenerio you might have bad tie rod ends causing the wheel to shudder while braking.


To check the tie rod ends place the front wheels in the air off the ground. and shake the tires from side to side while having an assitant hold the tie rod end.
You should feel nothing coming from the tie rods.
if they are bad you will feel them tick as you move the tire from side to side.

then check your brake pads they should be thick and the rotors should look like a mirror with NO pits or burn marks in it.some rust on the outter edges is normal. but before changing try calculating the mileage you have went on the brakes.
Thanks for using fix ya hope we fixed your problem

Check your brake pads and rotors. They may be locking up if the pad or rotor is damaged. Also check to make sure your brake fluid is not empty and if the brakes had been recently done make sure they were bled correctly.

Bad wheel bearing?
Brake pads worn?
Dirt/pebble caught between brake pads and rotor?
Bad CV joint?
ball joint, sway bar links tie rods have it checked out
could be brake pad indicators. when the brake pads get worn, an indicator will make noise. usually stops when you are on the brake.

Hello, it sound as if you may need to have your brakes checked. The vibration you feel is actually going to be a rotor warped. You will also want to have your wheel bearings checked at the same time. This can be dangerous if left alone,for an extended period of time.Thank you

"i get a ticking noise from the front of the car then when breaking there is a shuddering from front near side wheel"

That is one brake locking up. The ticking noise may be because of a damaged disk or because of a broken brake pad.
That is also the cause for the brakes locking up.

You need to have brakes taken apart and brake shoes replaced. If the disk or caliber is damaged, they may also need replacement.

    Regarding the brake pedal pumping, sometimes brakes can lock up because the caliper locks up.

    When you push the brake pedal, you will hit the caliper with pressur , and this can unlock the brakes.

    Have your brakes done as soon as possible, the vehicle is unsafe in this conditions.

This seems like a bad brake disc. I think you'll need to have it check and most likely replced and it would be a good idea to have the brakes pads replaced again,

Sounds to me like either a bad driveshaft, wheel bearings, or since it is shuddering when you brake.  Could be something wrong with your brake system on the wheel.  Such as rotor, pads, or calipers.

    Hmmm....Sounds to me like a bad caliper or the seals are worn.  I just talked with a friend and he said another possibility is the anti lock brake sensor is not working correctly.

  • Shadow1989 Mar 03, 2009

    I would say check your brakes first...sounds like something is sticking.

  • Shadow1989 Mar 03, 2009

    There really isn't much more specific.  Brakes are brakes.

My 2004 Mazda tribute has started shuddering in all gears, not contuously but seems when it drops below the 2 on rpms. Had just had it serviced and oil changed 2 weeks ago


Did you have the motor oil changed or the transmission oil? Your check engine light should be on and you should have it scanned by a professional. Did it start to shudder immediately after the service? Its very hard to tell without seeing the car to diagnose myself.

Roaring sound coming from front end as Mazda gains speed. Turning steering wheel changes the frquency of the noise.


You have a front wheel bearing that is making noise. Usually the one that is the problem is louder when turning in the opposite direction. If you turn right and noise gets loud then its your left bearing and if you turn left and the noise gets loud then its your right bearing. Understand that thats just a rule of thumb and that either bearing can make noise in either direction. Good luck!
