Check your air intake tubes if there even slightly loose your car will stall also if it has the (MAF) MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR on the intake it could be the problem this is around $50-100 bucks. But it sounds like the air intake tubes are loose you may also would want to change the air filter it could be dirty and plugged up,

Good Luck!

My Toyota RAV4 shakes when I apply brakes, especiall going downhill. Do they need to be replaced?

More than likely it's time to replace .Usually if the pedal shakes hard while breaking that signifies that the rotor is bad.Sounds to me as if you will be replacing breaks and rotors.

After changing rotors and breaks, steering shakes worse

If they don't look the same Than they are not the same. Thre are two different rotors for the fronts for this car. One is for vehicles with 15" wheels and the other is for the performance package pwhich would have 16 & 17 inch wheels. Take the new rotors back along with the old ones and they should be able to figureout what you need. It is possible for new rotors to be out of round and require turning with a brake lathe in order to make them true. More times than not it is not necessary but it can happen. Just in case the right rotors are installed and you still get a vibration, Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

You need to have the front rotors turned or replaced. Take a set of dial calipers and measure the rotor thickness. compare that to the specs on the rotor and that will let you know if you can turn them. Put new pads on and make sure to lube the slider pins.

Front end shakes when turn

Could be a couple of things. If it shakes when you turn but you aren't touching the breaks it could be your wheel bearings in the front. If it shakes when you are on the breaks it could be a cracked rotor or a sticking caliper. Any number of worn out front end parts like balljoints and tie rods could allow your vehicle to shake while turning.

As im pressing on the break from going about 45 mph the steering wheel shake as do the whole car could it need an allignment

that seems like you have a warpped rotor. If you need an alignment your car will veer to one side of the road or the other when you let go of the steering wheel at those speeds. Another way to test your front brakes for braking problems is to let loose of the steering wheel at about 35 miles per hour and press the brake quite firmly. If your car really veers right or left then, you know your problem is in the brakes. As a note, about 70% of your braking power comes from front rotors. But the shaking you are describing sounds like you could use a brake job. Pads and rotors are very inexpensive to purchase and rotors these days are not worth having turned...just buy new ones. If you are somewhat mechinically inclined, you can do a complete pad and rotor job for about 150 bucks saving yourself hundreds of dollars vs. having someone do it for you. Please let me know how everything turns out.

Audi 80. My car is shaking when i use my breaks.Nearly every thing are new,include breaks many time.Some good idea?

Hello! If your vehicle shakes on brake application i think you should have the rotors re-surfaced. This will "true" them back up and should correct your problem. Check rear brake system also for drum/rotor problems. Always torque the lug nuts to specifications and in a star pattern. This will ensure the rotors wont warp due to impoper tightening. Hope you find this information useful!

Well even though you had the rotors turned, they still could be warped and causing the car to shake at a high rate of speed when the brakes are applied. My suggestion is to replace the rotors asap.

2005 ford expedition faulty breaks

Try buying top quality rotors, Raybestas, Wagner, or Bendix. Do not buy second line rotors. Buy the top line, OE quality pads. Make sure that when the rotors are installed that you clean out behind where the rotor mounts and the studs. All rust, dirt and debris needs to be removed. When you mount the wheels back on the vehicle, they need to be torched back to ford specifications, follow the specs to the letter. These trucks are VERY picky when it comes to brakes and skipping just one of the steps above will lead to trouble.

Shuttering steering wheel when turning

he said power steering? wtf?! if it's air in the lines, he messed up, which I highly doubt it is in the first place. See, depending on the method of pushing the pistons back in, he should of bleed the lines when the job was done. I belive, when he "turned" the rotors it wasn't quite centered and now when you're stepping on the breaks, it's causing a "shaking" through your steering system. what's happening is, your break pads aren't in contact with your rotor the whole time while breaking because the rotor wasn't level when it was "turned." so your brakes are gripping half the rotor and not the over half causing the "shaking." And in cause you were wondering, the term "turned" basicaly means shaving off the glossy film on your rotor so that the new brake pads can and will grip your rotor better for improved stopping power. Which should be done everytime when brakes are changed. Now, as of him messing up when turning the rotors, don't be mad. That happens. A fraction of an inch can cause this and is easily fixed. Just be polite and ask him to return the rotors. If he refuses, then start getting rude about it. Redoing the rotors, shouldn't take more then a hour and at no cost to you cause it wasn't done in the first place. Sorry for rambling on.
