    thank for your reply, those comments did nothing to make me understand a little more about the problem. to me t seems more related to the gear box since it stops immediately when it gets disingaged. thank you dominic

  • angelic78 Jun 19, 2009

    im sorry but that does not explain the fact that prob. stops when gear gets disingaged. if next opinion does not address directly that issue i would like the charge to reversed. thank you kindly. dominic

Hi..
This is a problem with a lot of vehicles that is overlooked for this reason: when a mechanic will hook up their computer and download the codes from the car's computer, the codes will generally tell you the problem the car is having, if the car kicked a code to the computer. Then the car will run through a diagnostic system check and when the system check comes back fine and there are no problems then what?
Sometimes the problem can not be found by the computer and the reason is that when the car runs it's system check, everything checks out fine! How can this be when the vehicle just stops running and then starts running after you pull to the side of the road and shut it down for a couple of minutes? The answer is simple. The ignition relay acts like a breaker in a house; when you have a relay that is weak, you will get this problem. But the computer will test it as good becouse it still is good. It's just weak, making it trip. The reason it will start again is because the relay will automatically reset itself after the relay cools and you are off and running again. To explain the type of reaction your car would experience if this were to happen is as follows: The car will just plain die! no warning! IT WILL NOT spit and sputter like it is running out of gas.

Locate your Fuel Injector Relay in your fuse and relay box. When your car stops, pull this relay out, and tap it sharply. Re-insert it, and if the car starts again, that's your problem. Apparently the inside circuit board breaks down, and a new relay is the only answer. Internittent faults like this are a total pain.. Hope this helps u...

thank u rate me

In neutral there is not as much load on your engine then when it is drive.A couple of things to check for are a bad front motor mount or side mount also have your plugs and wires check they could be breaking down .BUT IF THE VIBRATION DOES NOT APPEAR IN REVERSE THE I SUSPECT A BAD MOTOR MOUNT.:]

Hello Dominic,

You were saying that it happens when stopping, right? Here are the possible cause of the problem:

1. Tie rod - Could be a lose tie rod or front end piece. Check ball joints and everything like that.

2. Alignment - The car had a major alignment problem (identified by the constant pulling) which was exacerbated by all of the horrible roads I had to drive on.

3. Wheels out of balance (identified by the steering wheel vibration) - After they fixed the alignment, they rotated and balanced all four tires.

4. Locking lug nuts - Apparently, these locking lugs can cause a tire to be out of balance (because of the weight). They found this when they rotated and balanced the tires.

You may also try putting some power steering liquid with stop lick. Most of the time bad allignment or not balanced tires. You could also have a bent rim. You may need to refer to a mechanic for second opinion.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

It may also be due to a loose or faulty electrical connection in theignition circuit or may be caused as a result of vacuum leak at thecarburettor, throttle body or inlet manifold. It can also be caused as result of fuel injection system fault. Sometimes your car will just plain stop running if you have a faulty coil wire. Thus the best way to determine and solve the problem inyour car would be to have it examined by an expert on the mechanismsand find out the exact nature of the problem as well as the ways tostop them from recurring. It is better to take this step at theearliest because if the engine goes dead halfway then it increases thechances of accidents.

Thanks
Kevin

    Could be more things. Most common would be the fuel filter plugged
    or weak fuel pump. It could be a faulty air control valve, or idle
    control system, emissions or engine control system components faulty.
    Faulty or incorrectly gapped spark plugs or bad plug wires. It's
    sort of hit and miss, unless you take it somewhere where they can check
    it out with a scanner...
    Thanks

Vibration coming from front axle when coming to a stop it gets worse, brakes are good , maybe cv joint?


if you feel the pulsation in brake pedal when stopping. its a warped brake rotor thats causing it. for bad cv joint symtoms--- Unusual noises when making turns. As you are driving on the road and you make a turn at the corner, if you start hearing unusual sounds coming from under the car then this is one of the symptoms of a bad CV joint. These noises will sound like something is clicking beneath the car every time you turn the steering wheel. Evidence of a damaged boot. Steering wheel feels heavier. The steering wheel will start to feel tighter and heavier and you can hardly make simple turns to the left or right. In severe cases you might even feel heavy vibrations like you are driving down a rocky road.

When im driven then i brake and stop for a red light the car shakes.and it only does that when i stop


it may be engine related,such as tune up.do you have a check engine light on? vibration from a stop at red light indcates you have a miss in the engine, does it sputter going down the road?please be more specific with make,model,engine size. it does matter. sometimes a simple tune up repairs issues like you've described. if no check engine light on,you may only need plug wires and plugs or may be a broken vacum line to the engine. look for small vacum hoses that are broken or disconnected around the air induction system. or OLD SCHOOL. where the carb, used to be. thank you for choosing fixya.com

I have a 2004 alero and when I press on the brakes to stop at a red light or stop sign a vibration occurs and it's loud but when I put it in park it stops vibrating. What can I do about this problem?


Sounds like you have warped rotors and or a lose caliper mounting bolt . When you stop do you feel a vibration in the brake peddle or in the steering wheel or both ? IF you feel the pulsation in the brake peddle I would suspect a brake pad / brake rotor problem . Now if you do not feel it in either and the vibration is through the whole car with out the brakes being applied i would think it may be related to and engine/drive line problem (motor mount /trans mount /axle problem)
