Question about 2005 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

When I press on the brakes, I feel a pulse sensation and my 05 corolla doesn't stop right away in cold weather. The car kind of veers to the left sometimes. Do I need to replace the pads, rotors or both?

You need to replace the front pads and resurface or replace the rotors. Also check your slides for the calipers and make sure they are clean and well lubed when yo reassemble the brakes. If the slight pull still occurs either nthe flex hose or caliper is starting to get weak. But I think for now doing the front pads and rotors will solve your problems.

Abs for 2001 ford excape


The ABS is controlled from the sensors at the wheels . The sensors signal when the wheel stops turning and the ABS releases the brake pressure to that wheel to allow it to turn again while maintain pressure to the other brakes. It has nothing to do with weather conditions or road conditions-- just wheels turning under brakes Under normal driving and brake applications you will not notice ABS operation as it will not be working. You will only notice the ABS assistance when you are under very heavy brakes and the sensation is a pulsing in the brake pedal under your foot. Run the fault code to check for recorded faults in the ABS or have an accredited brake shop specialist check out your concerns

1999 Toyota Corolla, I recently took it to a shop because the front left wheel was overheating and there was a distinct burning smell coming off of the left wheel. The mechanic replaced the "flex...


First of all I would be arguing with the first shop for a refund. you reported an issue with the LEFT wheel and they worked on the RIGHT wheel...The "flex" line your refering to is probably the short length of brake line from the caliper to the hard line.

If the caliper was "locking up" you would get lot of grabbing and the car would veer to the left when you applied the brakes. I suspect the wheel bearing is bad.

Car is jerking ? mostly while pressin on brake..is this the transmission? 2004 chevy malibu classic


Hello kelley_hornb: My name is Roger and I will help with your problem: If this occurs when you apply the brake pedal? I would look at the brakes. Should your rotors be warped you will have a pulsing feel in the brake pedal when stopping. The harder you push the brake pedal the faster the pulsing feeling.The transmission useually does not cause this feeling or problem. The next time you drive your car. Feel for the sensation when you slow down. As the car gets slower and you can safely let the car stopwith gentle pressure on the pedal. The car should stop with the same pulsing feeling as the car rolls to a stop.Or try putting the car in neutral at 10 mile an hour and gently step on the brake. If you feel the puling then the problem would be the brakes and not the transmission. In doing this you took the transmission out of the equassion. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

2001 chev impala ls makes whirring type noise when going down the street. Sounds like its coming from the drive or tranny. Stops when I veer right.


This sounds like the hub bearing.If it stops when you turn right then it is the right side front.When you veer right this takes the weight off the right side and the noise goes away.If the noise comes back and stays there when you veer left then the weight of the vehicle is on the right side.Hope this helps.Good luck.
