Question about 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Ford Explorer and as it comes to a gentle stop the last foot or so I get a vibration in the pedal and a low roar. The pads and discs all look good. I have bled the lines and the problem isn't getting any worse or better. Any ideas?

Hi, it could be your disc is warped due to wear and it also could be your needing your disc pads renewed. The squeaky sound could be your wheel bearing is needing renewed. Best get it checked out.

Why does the pedal vibrate while vehicle is moving?


brake pedal I take it
this from warped disc rotors for the brakes
the warp makes the caliper pistons move in and out and this comes back to the foot pedal
the problem is bad original discs fitted from the factory , discs been machined past acceptable limits
the fix is new after market , quality discs with new disc pads

My ford explorer 1996 gauge would drop below 500rpm when i step on the break to stop and engine vibrate, rpm will return back to 800 once I shift to neutral. Please advise what's wrong.


If you have a vacuum assisted brake then check the brake booster for failure allowing air into the mixture and running the engine lean. Simple test allow the engine to idle in neutral. If ok then place your foot on the brake and if it changes then it is the booster . Replace with serviceable unit.

Shift interlock solenoid for 2002 ford explorer


Look at the top of your brake pedal lever. You can verify a problem by looking at your brake lights when you press them. Most likely they will not light up. It is this signal which releases the shift interlock solenoid.

Often a foot will dislocate or break the switch on the brake pedal lever.

Replace the rear brake pads and rotors. what are


they are to stop the vibration from the rotor to the pads to the foot pedal.
not so much of a shim as a vibration damper. most have a sticky side on them so check for it first before installing.

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

Brakes


This seems like two different vehicles with two different problems. first the 1997 Ford Explorer- with new rotors and pad. I can almost guaranty that the rotor and pads that were replace are "after market" parts. If it is true,then the brake pad are at fault 95% of the time, the other 5% is the rotor. This because alot of after market parts are alot cheaper and are poorly manufactured out of cheap materials. I would recommend Motor-craft rotors and pads for this vehicle and that would take care of this problem. However if it is original parts on the car the dust shield on the hub may be to blamed, may have gotten bent into rotor during brake job. As far as ABS re-learn braking pattern that all BS that's absolutely 100% NOT TRUE. I am ASE certified in brakes and I never heard of such nonsense. As for the 1999 Explorer this problem is the ABS system applying it self prematurely. The sound that you feel on the pedal is when the ABS is active. Most common reason for this is a bad abs/wheel speed sensor, it could have gotten damaged during the brake job or grease or rust or something is between the sensor and sensor gear/ring. I have seen this many times before, just re-check everything. The abs becomes active because it detects a slip or brakes locking up or in your case maybe a false reading from sensor. Good luck and contact me if you need more help

My brakes grind and vibrate when pressed


My feeling is that you did not use a high quality pad like the Bendix or wagner thermo quiets and the rotors likely need surfacing even if they are new they can be warped due to the way they are stored. Good Bendix pads for this vehicle retail for around 75.00 or more
