Question about 2004 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

Brake pad and rotor problems creating an on-going noise and vibration. Pads in front and back have been replaced;also rotors have been ground.

We have a 2004 Honda Odyssey Van w/ 50,000 mi-had brake pads in front and back recently due to noisy vibration when braking and not braking. Dealership ground the rotors but said that they were still badly corroded (as if we had the car in a beach environment). Noise subsided for a while but today (rainy day) noise and vibration has started up again. So frustrated. Help!

    Not yet, I'm waiting to hear what the dealership has to say.

    Your rotors "did not" get warm on the "rainy day" as you described. If your rotors are "warped", you would have the issue every time you drive your vehicle. There is no doubt you should replace your brake rotors, and maybe look a little further as I stated. Failing wheel bearings can run smooth in one position, turn a corner and they can move to a different position, grind, cause squeaking, and vibration.

    It sounds like your vehicle may have been the victim of a flood (katrina) or something of the nature. This may have caused premature damage to your wheel bearings, as well as the brake rotors.

You need to replace the rotors.On new vehicles the manufacturer designed the rotors along with other parts to be replaced at certain mileage or ware.When they ground the rotors they became thinner.So now when the brakes warm up the rotors are easier to warp,which is the problem your having now.

WHy dose my brake pedal push back and make a grinding noise


Look through the openings in your front wheels and look at the front rotors-are they gouged up? You are probably running metal-to-metal, pads to rotors.
Chances are real good your rotors will have to be replaced along with new pads, but if you catch it early enough you might be able to have them machined, although nowadays that is hardly easy to get done and the savings usually is not as significant as it once was.

Steering wheel shakes at high speed when brakes are applied


This is caused by the front disk brake rotors being warped from heat and running out of true, the wobble of the warped rotors causes the wheel to shake when you apply the brakes, it is worse the higher the speed you apply them at. Have the front rotors machined flat again or just replace them.

When i press on brakes i can hear a grinding noise coming from he front end, what could it be?


Brake pads are worn. That noise is the sound of the backing plate for the brake pads hitting the rotors. You will need to replace the pads and probablt the rotors. When the brakes go metal to metal like that it typically destroys the rotor.

There is a grinding sound when I press the brakes on my Hyundai 2010. What might be the problem?


Hi,
If it is a grinding noise then you have a problem with the brake pad area, it may have a stone caught in this area. Or it may have worn front brake pads.

Sometimes brake dust or dirt builds up and causes this, other times the rotors become overheated and polished surfaces rubbing together make harmonic noise (squeeling). Another problem could be the higher metal content in the pads (if you just replaced with metallic pads) and this is normal squeeking. But if you think the problem is recent and no brake work is suspect, you'll need to raise the front and remove the two tires and inspect. Even if your brake sensor light is not on, check the thickness of the pads by looking through the back of the brake caliper. You should see at least 1/4' pad. If no pad is present you've found the problem, and don't drive any further until you've replaced the pads. If you have pad life, take an emery cloth or 220 higher sand paper and go around the rotor surfaces lightly enough to remove any shine. Spray liberally with brake cleaner the rotors and brake calipers and pads. Reassamble and do the rear brakes. Finally, if that doesn't work, you should check the back of the pad to see if any anti-vibration grease or paste is present. This acts as a dampner to the vibration and holds the pad slightly tighter in the brake caliper.

Brake pad replacement. My brakes are making a squeeking sound as I drive. Sounds like rotor or brake pad problem.

My escape is making a grinding sound, along with pulsating when braking. My husband has replaced the abs sensor, and it is still doing te same thing. Any suggestions what to do next?


The grinding sound when braking is almost surely worn brake pads. If an abs sensor is bad it will set the abs light on. Heres an easy way to figure whether to look at the front or rear brakes first. When braking, take notice as to whether the vibration is felt more in the steering wheel or the seat. If it is more in the steering wheel take a look at your front brakes first, and obviously if it is felt in the seat look at the back brakes first. Both front and rear need to be checked out because the pulsating you are feeling is due to rotors or drums that have been heated up and warped. In order to fix both problems, you most likely will need brake pads and rotors/drums. If you just replace the pads, not only will the pads wear away faster due to the damage to the rotors/drums, but your vibration issue will not go away and infact may intensify.

Changed the front brakes on my 2005 Grand Caravan and now there's clicking and serious vibration at speeds above 40mph. Also, I need to bleed the brakes, b/c the brake pedal doesn't respond normally, and I...


sounds like the pads were either installed wrong or your forgot the have the rotors ground down. grinding down the rotors would have taken out any extra vibration. if the rotors arent ground flat, the pads will cause vibration as they seat against the uneven surface of the rotors. the clicking indicates that the brake calipher was not secured and is hitting the wheel when the brakes are applied. PLEASE Get a Manual from chiltons or haynes for your car they will help you change your pads and rotors more efficently.

Steering whell shimmies when brakes are applied


A common problem with brakes are the rotors warping,which causes a vibration when applying the brake pedal.The brake pads,clamp down on the brake rotor,which slows the vehicle,and in the process,both items are subjected to very high temperatures.This is what causes the rotors to warp,which in turn creates the vibration you feel.Best solution is to replace the rotors and pads,with new.The calipers,which hold the brake pads,should be checked by the technician to make sure the piston is working properly,and not leaking.The rubber hoses should also be checked,no cracks or leaks,etc.Good luck.
