Question about 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
2001 Chevy Monte Carlo-Has had issue since bought in 2003 apparently. My fiance's car, just drove it the other day. She says brakes have done this since she got it 6 years ago and brake technician told her it was normal, I don't think so. At any speed if brakes are applied, you can feel brake pulsation in the pedal and in the car. Looked at the pads, and all look good except the driver's side, which are much thinner than the passenger side or rears. My thought is a bad wheel speed sensor in the passenger side, thus making the driver's side work harder, there is also a little blueing on the driver's side disc. The ABS light does not come on. It is exactly the type of pulsation one would get if the ABS system was active on a slick road.
Does this sound like the issue,or is there something else I should know/ look for. Discs appear to be in good shape. How difficult is the wheel speed sensor to replace, I have a pretty good grasp on mechanical stuff. Any one else have similar issues?
Check the rotors, go to a different shop and have them check lateral run-out and to check for parallelism of the rotors, if that is not it i dont know
