Brake pedal drops very low on first press only


It is most likely you have air in the brake fluid. The first press of the pedal compresses the air and the effect lasts for a little while.
Another cause may be warped (bent) rotors, the pads can be pushed back into the calipers by the off center area of the rotor. This means that the pads have to travel further in order to contact the rotors when you press the pedal.

WHEN I BRAKE BY A STOP STREET WITH MY 325TI BMW, THEN THERE IS SOME VIBRATION ON THE BRAKE PADDLE


Sounds like you may have warped front rotors. They can be felt in the brake pedal when stopping. The warpage of the rotor actually pushes the caliper piston in and out which is felt by your foot. Another vibration you may feel is the ABS system coming on if there are poor road surfaces.That feels quite a bit different than a warped rotor.

Just changed brakes on gmc envoy, coming to a stop abs light comes on and brake pedal pulsates a b it


Did you replace the rotors or at least have them machine ground to true? Out of round or warped rotors will do this. It's a pain I know but rotors should be replaced or ground to true everytime new brake pads are installed.
I hope my suggestions helps and all the luck to you.

1997 Toyota Camry, when coming to a stop i feel a slight movement in the brake pedal at the end, i have had the brakes checked and was told that the pads rotors, and calipers are fine, also the ABS light...


There is a possibility that the rotors are warped and need either turned or need new ones. If ABS is acting up it could effect the pedal movement too but usually more drastic movement. Only other way to know is have a good mechanic run the scanner checking brakes on the run.

When I step on the brake it pushes back and jerks before coming to a complete stop. All fluids and ABS fuse checked. HELP! Trish from Maryland


Your brake rotors are warped. Which causes a high spot on the rotor, so when you apply the brakes, the pedal will pulsate. You'll need s new set of rotors.

If I understand you correctly, you feel a vibration it the brake pedal when you apply the brakes. Is that correct?
Have your brake rotors re surfaced; they are warped.

"engine makes cavitating noise" ....what does this mean?

Brakes


you may have to take the rotors back off completely and look for the baby brake shoes behind the rotors because sometimes they will hang up and give you some of the problems you are having

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.
