It could be your rotors are warped due to high speed braking (you are going about 60mph on the off ramp and stopvery quickly), pads are damaged, or the ABS system has an issue with it. One thing it could be is the ABS wheel and speed sensor.

    There is no screeching or grinding with warped rotors....frequent high speed braking though will give you warped rotors. The rotors cannot be turned correctly either and if some one does them for you, you're just wasting your money.

    This is the type of rotor you need to prevent any further warping:

I HAVE A 2004 AZTEK AND HAVE VIBRATION WHEN PRESSING GAS PEDAL. WHAT CAUSES THIS?


you don't say where the noise is. that is important to give a clue where the issue is. when stopping on the brakes 3 things happen. you press the pedal and the abs pump starts pumping fluid. the second is the brake capilers start pushing on the rotors to slow the car. the rotors are attached to the wheels and that stops the car. so if the rotors are warped you will feel a vibration in the steering wheel when stepping on the brakes. if its your foot feeling the pump working that is normal for abs pumping. you should feel it and holding the pedal will keep it working and stop you from skidding if everything is working correctly

Car shakes, thumps and feels sluggish but idles fine.


Im betting it may be a crankshaft position sensor thats on the way out. Most of the time vehicles will idle and start ok but under any load will spit, sputter, and have no power.

Take your car to a mechanic or your local auto parts superstore and have them read/scan the codes for the reason for the check engine light. A good place to start.

Brake problem (squishy sound)


A sound like that that you can hear inside has to be the vacumn assist tank leaking air. Did you bleed the new master cyl ?

2005 honda accord noise when breaking (transaxle)


You say you hear the noise when you "slow down". Does this mean you hear the thumping noise when you let off the gas and let the car coast to a stop or only when you are applying the brakes to decellerate?
If you only hear the noise while applying the brakes then I would assume it has something to do with your brakes. The first thing that comes to mind would be rotors that aren't true or warped which could make a thumping sound.

Do you feel any vibrations in your foot when it is applying pressure to the brake pedal? If you do feel a sort of pulsating feeling then it could very well be your brakes making the noise.

I hope I was of some assistance,

Hissing sound from brake pedal of Renault Scenic 2001


Hi,
From your description this appears to be a Brake servo issue.
The brakes are assisted by a vacuum created from the draw off the inlet manifold, it gives assistance too the brake pedal pressure by a large tank/cylinder mounted on the Bulkhead/firewall.
I feel that the sound you a hearing is air being draw into the Brake Servo from the foot pedal seal and the reason for fluctuation in the engine is the vacuum from the inlet manifold is being upset.
Attention I suspect should be addressed to the Brake servo/pedal seal or gaitor.
I hope this clarifies your thoughts?
Please remember to rate my effort.
