Question about Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

Intermittent break shudder issue. Every now and then (usually when driving longer distances)my front right break will produce a shudder (almost like the piston is not releasing) - took it to the garage but they said they could see nothing after a visual inspection and that it is most likely the break caliper that needs replacing. The problem is intermittent and occurs occasionally. Anyone have an idea what the problem could be?

The whole body of the car vibrate, when I drive high speed and only when I touch the break, also I can not stop the car in a place where I need. what is the problem?

You have break issues, possibly a warped rotor, a bad caliper. From your description it sounds like your braking distance is very long compared to normal. A clogged or bad brake line on one side will do this.

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.

2000 Silverado torque converter shudder. Issue surfaced after trans broke and was replaced. Trans replaced, torque converter shudders between 40 and 50 when applying throttle but not enough to down shift....

I would have the wheel hubs/bearings checked for noise, resistance, or wear. This part is notorious for creating a shudder and all 4 wheels have them. If the shudder comes from the front it is probably just a bad hub. I have also had worn bushings cause this problem, but it's usually a combination of the bad hub and worn bushing.

Intermittent Shuddering when driving, as though going over large ripple strips. Lasts for a few seconds. Does not happen at the same place on the same road, but intermittent. Also 'clunk' noise (could be...

possible suspension issue, maybe with the bushings/joints? I would have it checked out by a mechanic, there is a large number of things under there that can cause this.

How often your I get a tune up and breaks?


Regarding the tune-up, you have 'iridium plugs', and the recommended replacement interval is 100,000 miles.

Replacement of the brakes is another issue. How and where you drive, in town or longer runs makes a big difference. Normal driving habits usually call for front brake replacement somewhere around 30-35,000 miles.

Vehicle shudders at various speeds, Speedometer fluctuates while shudder is in progress, stops suddenly and drives normally. Vehicle is a 2000 Ford Expedition, 4.6L

Very difficult to diagnose a shudder in a vehcile if you are not there to "feel" what it is doing but here are 2 possibilities. First your drive line may have a u-joint going out and if its a 4X4 dont overlook your front drive line and second you may have a tie rod or a ball joint that is worn causing your shudder. either way it would be important for you to address this issue quickly

Shake/Shudder while depressing the brake.

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!
