Question about 2000 Isuzu Trooper

1 Answer

Shake/Shudder while depressing the brake.

What can cause my vehicle to shake/shudder when the brakes are applied? The higher the speed at braking the more violent the shake/shudder and the lower the speed at braking the less violent shake/shudder. All runs smooth other than at 65 miles per hour it gets a bit of a steering wheel shake (very light), which I take to be a high-speed balance issue as it stops when under 65 mph. I just bought the vehicle from an open to the public Auction that had a window tag stating that all new brakes had been put in. I am having this checked out this week to see if they are new or only front or back are new and or if the rotors are warped, etc. Can you let me know what to expect and or what I need to be aware of regarding this problem and is it a safety issue if I still drive before the fix? Do you know what may be causing this (shake/shudder) to happen? Thank you so much for your time and help in this problem. Have a great day/night!

I just changed the brake pads and rotors on my father's 2001 Trooper that he recently purchased because they were shaking just like your were.  He bought it from a mechanic shop and they had put new pads on it but it needed new rotors as well.  If there is noticable groving on the rotors and new pads are installed it can create shaking, sometimes severe, when the brakes are applied.  It sounds like this is what has happened with your vehicle as well.  That being said, I don't consider it a huge safety issue to drive it until you get it fixed, just know that your braking will not be optimal and that it will take you longer to stop than if the brakes were working properly.  All that being said, get them fixed ASAP so you don't have to worry about it.  Who wants to mess with safety right?  Good luck, hope this helps!

I have an Opel Vivaro Panel van. When I apply brakes, the steering wheel shudders quite badly. I have just had new front tires fitted with alignment and balancing. The shuddering only happens when bra


Front brake rotors are warped,if it didn't shake before the wheels were removed, re-torque the lug nuts. If the shake was there before,the rotors either need machined or replaced.

If the problem is due to warped brake discs, you will typically feel a mild pulsing in the peddle when braking firmly. Also, when you are experiencing this shudder, taking your foot off the brake (when safe to do so) should cause it to stop. If that is not the case, I would consider again the transmission. I am on my second Caravan, so I speak from experience. The Caravan transmission should have the fluid changed every 30,000 miles to keep it in top performance, especially if you are carrying any heavy loads or pulling a trailer. When you are slowing to a stop, the transmission must downshift through each of the gears. If it stays in the higher gears at too slow a speed, you will feel a shudder. Sometimes this can be corrected by changing the transmission fluid. Be sure to use the proper Chrysler fluid for your transmission. Typically it is the highest (overdrive) gear that causes the shudder. You can determine this by moving the gear selector from "D" to "3" when you are experiencing the shudder. Other possibilities are alignment, worn stabilizer bar bushings, worn ball joints, and out-of-round tires. Most of these also involve some accompanying noises though. Good Luck.

MY 2005 EQUINOX AWD front right wheel intermittent braking and shaking


Could be caused by a sticking/failing CV joint. If you check boots and see cracks or tears most likely the Joint then got debris which could lead to failure.
Confirm that it FEELS like brakes are active but your NOT applying brakes. If this is the case then my thought on CV joint would be first check. I had one fail a few years ago and it was similar. Vibration started and then I could feel the vehicle slowing.

If you ARE applying brakes and you fee the shudder or vibration then it may be related to a tie rod end. A worn tie rod allows the wheel to go off track slightly and the result we feel when driving is a shudder or vibration.

Hope this helps guide to a solution.
