What causes brake shimmy C2500 1991 5.7L?


Brake shimmy is due to hot spots on the rotor or drum the metal is actually hardened in the spots causing friction differences when the brakes are applied causing front end to shimmy . If you have your rotors turned the hot spots are still present so I have always justr replaced rotors pads all at once shimmy gone .

Shimmy of rear driver tire


Check for a shifted belt in that tire. You'll probably have to lift it and turn it to check for any wobbling. It could also be out of balance.

Check engine light flashes and the car shimmies, although not as though it's out of alignment.


A flashing ck eng light is an indication that your vehicle is burning way too much gas, enoigh to damage the catalytic converter. Is the shimmy rhythmic, like a constant repeated vibration that increases with acceleration? If so, have your ignition coils checked. You may have a defective one creating a misfire.

Have 2005 Odyssey with same shimmy at low speed


Usually if u can drive into and out of a shimmy it is tire problems, usually balance. It can happen at diffenent speeds. The "shimmy" is the tires bouncing.

1995 jeep wrangler shimmy's


not a big problem. It may be tie rod wearing. If you hear a click when turning it would be the ball joints. If it does not make clicking sound, then most likely tie rod ends or improper alignment

I have a shimmy in mySteering wheel not all the time it comes on randomly.


In absence of more information, this is usually an symptom of warped brake rotors. A rotor can build up enough heat in a hard stop to be bendable especially with the high hydrolic pressure a brake pad can bring to bear. Simply, If you keep the brake pedal depressed hard after a hard/long stop it can warp the rotor. (NOTE: at a hard stop, as soon as possible let the car creep forward a few inches at a time so the brake pad won't be on any one spot too long, plus keep light brake pressure --only enough to keep the car from rolling). The warped rotor causes the brake pad and caliper to float too far from the rotor and you won't feel the shimmy until you apply brakes. Under brake pedal pressure each time the wheel rotates under brake pressure the rotor and caliper will rapidly vibrate a few millimeters to each side giving the sensation of a shimmy in the sterring wheel. Most of the time this can be corrected by having the rotors resurfaced( aka Turned)

Out of balance or out of round tires can also cause a shimmy but should occur at a given speed range. Warpped rotor shimmy occurs during deceleration.
