Why is the left front tire thumping and the brake pedal vibrating when I stop


ABS thinks you are skidding, and is applying the brakes on and off. Likely one of the ABS sensors is bad.

Any ideas why a 2003 chevy trailblazer may vibrate in the front but stops when you turn left


Does the vehicle make any noises while driving? If there is a "growling or roaring " noise associated with the vibration, check the right front hub bearing. If there are no noises and only vibration, check the right front upper ball joint and control arm bushings. The Trailblazer's upper ball joint and control arm bushings become worn and cause the tire and wheel assembly to shimmy while driving. The vibration stops when turning left because of weight transfer to the right side which keeps the wheel steady for a moment. Also, check the tire for irregular wear.

What is the cause of continual thumping (appears to be coming from back of car) and violently shaking?


Many times, rear tires that are out of round or severely cupped or feathered, or that are out of balance can create this type of issue. My first recommendation would be to have them and the wheels on the rear of the car inspected. There may not seem like there is much wrong visibly if you look at just the tread of the tires, but a good tire tech can spin them up and give you some solutions, and the inspection itself is inexpensive. Hope this helps.

Subaru 03 Forester - problem in front differential, 3 wheels turn


Thumping noises and vibrations can be something as simple as a tread separation(or a big bubble) on one of your tires.As for the one wheel turning---that's perfectly normal.If you grab the wheel that's turning (not really recommended) and stop it completely,the other wheel will spin.

I HAVE A 98 TOWN AND COUNTRY LSI.6 CYL 3.8 THE TRANS START TO SHUDDER BETWEEN 45 AND 50 AFTER THE CAR GETS WARM (ENGINE) IT STOPS WHEN I LET UP ON THE GAS.CAN YOU HELP.


vibrations can occur on front wheel drive vehicles from the CV Joint   it is similar to a universal joint   if the rubber boot around it ruptures and water gets in it can seize and cause vibrations that would become noticeable at certain speeds    I have also seen vehicles that have the main bearing in the engine have wear that would cause vibration in the engine itself

Thumping coming from front end all speeds.


IF IT ONLY THUMPS WHEN YOUR CAR IS MOVING YOU COULD BE WRITE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE THUMPING CLOSLEY, DO YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE STEERING WHEEL, IF SO THE PROBLEM IS IN THE FRONT END. IF YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE DRIVERS SEAT THE PROBLEM IS IH THE REAR END. YES THE VIBRATION FROM THE FRONT STEERING AND THE DRIVERS SEAT IS A WAY TO TELL WHERE THE PROBLEM IS

Thumping sound


If it's also a "wub wub" sound, look into your tires. I had a flat spot in my front driver's side tire that made the "wub wub" sound. Couldn't hear it well if driving slowly, but as I would pick up speed, the "wub wub" would increase in frequency and volume.
