If the car shakes while you are pressing the brakes, you likely have warped brake rotors (usually the front brakes are the culprit because they provide most of the stopping power and accumulate the most heat). If that's the case, you should have the rotors and pads replaced.

It is a common issue and relatively easy fix.

Usually a sign one of the front brake rotors is out of round. It could also be something wrong with the abs but I doubt it.

When you get a vibration at high speeds when you hit the brakes the rotor/s are very slightly warped. Depending on miles, you may be able to get them turned / surfaced. One other thing is if you don't drive it to much, they can rust and cause the same problem. Hitting the brakes a few times on the highway will smooth them out.

1. vehicle vibrates while braking @ speed of 55mph+ 2. automatic window does not operate correctly


Hello: 1. You may have rotors that are not parallel, if you can fell the brake pedal trying to move up and down while you have the vibration then you need to get the rotors turned and also check the front pads while its apart. If the brake pedal is not moving when you have the vibration or the steering wheel is not shaking then it could be the back rotors (if you have 4 wheel disc brakes). If its the driver window that does not go down automatically you may have a bad switch.

1992 saturn sc2 vibrates when in drive foot on brake ive replaced tensenor @ belt tensenor is the vib help


If the car or brake pedal is vibrating when you hit the brakes, I would be looking at replacing the front discs as opposed to the serpentine belt. If the engine is vibrating, without any brake pedal, I would be looking at the mounts, especially the dog bones at either end though the top mount is know for failure as well . At that age with an old timing chain you could have a problem there too.

sounds like warped rotors, if the steering wheel also shakes then that would tell me its in the front, replace the front pads and rotors that will solve your problem.dont try resurfacing youll just have pulsating brakes again in a month or two.

Car Shakes


Certainly sounds like a partially, or seized caliper hanging up, which has warped rotor. What exactly did they replace at brake job, do you know? Either way they need to be rechecked.
