2000 ford excursion v10 2 wheel drive...shakes when braking moderately. It doesn't do if you brake hard or lightly. Just had the tires rotated too

Brake rotors warped. Have machine turned or replace. Don't use semi metal pads. They create excessive heat that warps the rotors.

My 1998 ford escort brake peddle started pulsing and then a noise. Checked fluid, not down any fluid, and no leeks, just feels like I can not stop well., No ABS lite til yesterday, then it came on after...

Normally a "pulsing" brake pedal means that that you have a warped brake rotor or the brake caliper is lose. I would start by taking the front wheel off and inspecting the brake pads and the rotor. If the brake pads are worn down bad replace them. Pay special attention to the brake rotors also as if the are grooved very bad, they should also be replaced.

When brakes applied the steering wheel shakes.

Your disc brake rotors are warped. Solution? Remove the disc brake rotors and have them turned on a brake lathe. Warpage comes from a hot disc brake rotor going through a puddle of water which causes the warpage. If you have a Parking Brake, get in a safe area and when stopping, ONLY apply the parking brake. If the steering wheel stops shaking...there's your problem...warped disc brake rotors.

Hello my steering wheel shakes braking from 60km/h

If I understand your question, it appears to be shaking only while braking and no other time. If this is correct, then you have warped brake rotors and/or rotors that are improperly torqued (which may result in warping). If the rotors are not either worn or warped excessively, they MIGHT be brought back into spec by turning them on a brake lathe, otherwise you will have to replace them.

Just replaced front brakes

Did you turn the rotors? Drivers that drive fast, brake hard and hold the pedal down hard after stopping will warp these small rotors.

When first applying the brakes there is a shuttering in the front end. After this it goes away and the car stops fine.

you need new brake pads and rotors and possibly calipers, the rotors are most likely warped. or the pads are worn enough where the caliper piston extends to the limit and is not stable in the caliper and wobbles.

2003 Saturn Vue; serious vibrations felt through the steering wheel while braking any ideas on where to start looking? Brakes are relitively new and rotors just got resurfaced

I'm betting it is the rotors. Warped rotors might cause your problem. Turned rotors that are too thin will warp when heated. Calipers that are sticking or grabing might also do this. A good mechanic should be able to diagnose it after driving it.

Have the lug nuts torqued down on the wheels to the spec's for that car. If they aren't torqued, some nuts will be tighter than others, causing the rotors to warp.

My brakes are grinding/vibrating only on the passenger side. only happens between 0-45 mph and quits when i press on the brakes to slow myself. the dust plate is not in the way i blead the lines

The most likely cause for your brakes grinding, especially on one side, would be a warped rotor. As the wheel spins this warped rotor is making contact with the pads. As you apply pressure the pads make full contact with the rotor causing the noise to stop. The pads may also be bad. Too much heat will cause the rotor to warp. Your best bet would be to replace both the pads and the rotor as either of them can be causing the problem. I do NOT recommend changing just one side of your brakes as this causes uneven braking and is ultimately dangerous.
