SOURCE: Forward push while stopping Jaguar S-Type 2005 model.

This is sometimes called the lurch, disconnect the battery for 30 mins to re-set the "memory" in the gearbox, this should solve your problem, the gearbox will re-learn your driving style. Make sure you have your radio code before you disconnect.

SOURCE: it jerks the car when I brake and come to a stop,

Probably transmission software fault - the s type is world famous for it - go on-line and search ''THE LURCH'' then compare your symptoms to what is described. If it is the lurch you have a good chance that the problem can be fixed with the latest Jaguar software update.

1999 Blazer wants to accelerate when braking

If the problem did not begin until after the "mechanic" did the tune-up, return the vehicle and encourage him to make it right. Also, if the "mechanic" could not find the probable cause of the misfire, have him do a proper diagnosis to isolate it.

I removed and reinstalled again the proportional valve in my corolla 99 XL (AE110) and since then ,when i suddenly press hardely the brakes , the cars spins from its tail...why it spins?

did you bleed the air from the whole brake system? if not, that could be one of the causes of your uneven braking. The other is a faulty rear caliper.

Truck shakes when brake is applied upon slowing down it gets shakier until i let off the brake and pulse the brakes till truck stops

A common cause for the vibration when braking is when front brake pads are replaced, but the brake rotors were not resurfaced smooth. Overtime when braking, the new pad will wear into the rotor that was not cut. The uncut rotor, having high and low spots when turning, will cause the brake pedal to vibrate/pulse when stopping.

Hi there, when braking there seems to be s slight clunk from under car. doesn't happen all the time. passengers hear the slight clunk at front as well as the back. i cant determine exactly where...

Take it in to a place like Fleet farm or Farm and Fleet and they will do a brake diagnostic for you for free. ( well , our local stores do it for free...)
You could be getting a little brake pad hang up due to a lack of lubricant on some major brake componants. Thats what it sounds like to me...

I'd also suggest you check the trunk and make sure there no loose items rolling around...

When i use the brakes over 50 mph the front shakes. between 40 and 50 mph theres a little shaking, below 40mph its brakes smooths

A slight shimmy under braking is usually the result of a brake rotor that is not true. Sounds like you may have a warpped brake rotor...I would check that, and your front suspension componets for wear.... I hope this helps.

I own a 2007 Chevy Malibu LS. Recently my brakes have been 'squealing' and my steering wheel has always vibrated when I press on the brake. I thought it was my brake pads and rotors but I just had them...

checked out replace pads /and cut rotors if pads are glazed over [film u were told ] the pads are smoothed over from getting to hot -riding brake or stop and go traffic lot of down hill braking which ever was the cause ur brakes got over heated and glazed over and are very smooth also the heat transferred to the rotors also warped them when u get steering shake when braking 90 percent of the time its warpage in rotor and the only way is to have them removed and put on a cutter to check for out of round also abs doesnt cause this abs [anti-lock braking] is designed to transmit a pulse to ur brakes when it senses a wheel is about to lock up or skid u would feel the pulse in ur brake pedal not ur steering
