Question about Mercury Mariner

Open Question

Ive got a 2010 mercury mariner and ive turned my front rotors, bought new ones, turned rear drums and still have a brake pulsation but I don't feel it in the steering wheel I feel it in the seat.

Replaced rotors around 4000 miles ago, just turned drums today and it still pulsates. there is no pulsation in the steering wheel. I can feel it when lightly pressing on brake pedal going any speed over 5 mph

SOURCE: pulsation in brake pedal and rear end hops during braking

What happens is if you have a bad front wheel bearing when you brake that wheel will turn in or out,when this happens it throws the four wheel alignment out and since this is a solid rear axle,it's forcing it to flex on the suspension,wich could cause the rear tires to bite on the outside edge of one tire and the inside edge of the other,thats one possible the other would be that the rear brakes are are not slowing the wheels evenly causing the same issue.I saw this problem with a bad front wheel bearing on a Nissan Pathfinder but not as pronouced due to the independent rear suspension. Check the front wheel bearings,which of course will mean getting the calipers off the rotors,and then check for any movement in the rotor,if there is check the hub nut,if it's loose tighten it and check for play in the rotor if there is still play that's going to be caused by a bad bearing.You can check the braking in the rear with a simple spring scale(like the ones used for fishing),with the wheels removed have someone apply enough pedal pressure to just engage the brakes but still allow movement attach the scale hook to a wheel stud and pull until it starts to move and note how many pounds of pressure it takes to move the hub.If it's uneven chech your adjusters and even them if needed and then retest,if still uneven you'll need to bleed them again.As far as the dark black substance in the fluid I would say you may gotten a contaminent in the fluid.Brake fluid gets kind of a rusty reddish residue when it breaks down.If I missed anything or you need clarification don't hesitate to ask I'm home all day.Hope this helps solve your problem.

SOURCE: brakes are pulsating in pedal.

Your rear drums are out of round (warped). Eventhough you turned them the problem will not go away because they have hot spots in them that turning can't remove. You need to replace them with new ones to solve this problem. Pulsing pedal is rear brakes and a shimmy in the steering wheel while braking is in the front brakes.. Good luck I hope this helps you out.

Brakes pulsating


Carefully,clamp off just one rear at a time and then try one front at a time,it should be just one of the wheels causing the shake.Once you get down to the one or two causing the problem don't forget to check hub runout,wheel runout and wheel balance too.Sounds like rear to me.

If you feel the pulsation in the wheel than its the front rotors that are likely warped. If you feel it in the seat than its the rear drums or rotors. If you don't feel it until you push on the brake pedal than it has to be in the brake system. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Replaced the right front wheel bearing after pulling the old one it was bad, Tire store said it was not the tires that was causing the virbration, replaced pads and rotors now the virbration feels like...


Could be the inner cup of the cv shaft or the carrier bearing if your vehicle has a halfshaft before the cv axle. If your getting pedal pulsation it must be a bad rotor. Now it should only do it when brakes are applied. Ive seen cases where the pads are very new and the rotor is so warped it will pulsate abd vibrate even withouth applying brakes. Other possobilty is that spindle was damaged and warped/ bent while pressing in new hub bearing.

I have a 2003 325xi........when i step on my brakes, the pedal pulsates like crazy and there's tremendous vibration. i feel like i won't be able to stop in time. it's really really scary! i got the front...


You can do a quick check yourself to see if the back rotors are warped. Warping is the most common cause of your problem and normally is the front rotors, but not necessarily the only one. All you have to do is block the front wheels of the car and jack up the rear one side at a time. With the wheel clear of the ground, turn it by hand for a few turns. If the rotor is warped you should feel some extra drag at some point when you are turning the wheel. Do both wheels and double check the front. I have seen new rotors that had to be turned because they weren't straight.
If you don't feel anything I would be inclined to look at the ABS because it can create a pulsation when it is working. Hope this helps.

Abs light coming on , turn key off and it goes back out ?


depends if it just a rear abs or all four abs system. check the rear end on top of the diff there will be a wires coming off it. then the fronts you have to remove the wheels and follow the wire that goes to back of the rotors, and speeking of rotors, get your rotors machined if there is room or just replace them. there warped if your feeling the brake pedal pulsate or the car
