Question about 2004 Toyota Solara

4 Answers

Steering wheel vibration at 65 mpr after I had master brake cylinder replaced. I have to pull off to side of road and stop car then start up again and problem stops. Can feel vibration in brake pedal when slowing car to a stop. Vibration seems to be intermittent. Doesn't happen every time I drive at 65 mpr. Car drives ok in local traffic, this problem only happens when driving faster speeds. I replaced tires already.

Did they "turn" your rotors? They may have "improperly" turned your front rotors. This is common and they should correct this where you had the work done.

Check balance of tires; if ok, have rotors refinished or replaced; most likely warped rotors if you can feel it in the brake pedal when braking

When is the last time you had the front end aligned and have you had any work done to the front end recently? The pulsating in the brake pedal can be caused by several things. Vibration in front end... warped brake rotors to name a couple. do you get the vibration after going over bumps in the road? I recommend that you have someone check out your front end and brake rotors. Good Luck

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.

i would suspect somewhere in your front end you have a compliance bushing with excessive movement. these cars front ends depend heavily on these style bushings, and as they wear you can start to see tire wear patterns, looseness in steering, and high speed vibration. make sure you have the front end inspected by a shop that is familier with these types of cars. good luck!

Very bad vibration when braking and between 60-65 mph


you really need to get this into a steering specialist.vague,wandering steering with a click is a sure sign of worn components,the bad vibration is consistent with this.I had a callout to a vehicle 2 weeks ago with similar fault,it failed on the road and could have killed driver or another .there are a number of joints in this area that contribute to this sympton,they all need correct inspection.steering rack or box,rack ends,tie rod ends,balljoints,wishbone/arm bushes,steering universals etc.

Your car has front disc brakes, the disc's are running out of true, as u apply the brake this causes the steering wheel to shake, the higher the speed the more u feel this, the solution is to have the front brake disc's machined true again on a brake lathe or if they are to thin replace them.
