My 2008 Pontiac doesn't have ABS so if the brake pedal on it is pulsating then i have a warped brake rotor on one of the wheels.

Hi,

If you have ABS on this vehicle which these models do, the brakes will ulsate if the pedal is depressed quite hard.

It does this because the ABS is working and it does make the brake pedal feel like its vibrating.

Hope this helps

Thanks

Jason

My brakes are pulsating


It could be a warped rotor or an out-of-round drum but it might also be loose wheel bearings, a bent axle shaft or loose brake parts. Or you might just be feeling you ABS kicking in. If it is one of those parts and you need to replace it, consider looking online for used auto parts.

1997 bonnevil brakes pulsate when applied


Inspect your brakes. Pulsating usually indicates an uneven component, most times a rotor or a drum... so when you go to fix it, count on buying more than just the pads this time.

Brakes pulsate when you put them on. When I take off from a complete stop it feels like the brakes are not releasing immediately.


Pulsating brakes are often caused by warped brake rotors. In order to check for a brake that isn't releasing I would suggest lifting one wheel at a time, applying the brakes and immediately checking if that wheel turns freely. Repeat on all 4 wheels. If you find one that isn't turning freely you'll have to address the problem with that brake.

Volvo 850 GLT's brakes??


if the pulsating in the steering occurs while braking this is an indications that the rotors are out of round and need to be turned or replaced. if they are causing a pulsating while driving without braking it could be the calipers sticking.

your back brakes will be cooler than the front brakes as the majority of braking is done ith the front brakes even on four wheel disc brakes. hope this helps.

PULSATION WHEN APPLY BRAKES


Even though you replaced the rotors, seems that you will still need to have them resurfaced. This assuming you are experiencing pulsation only when braking.

Brakes pulsate real hard


That is just the ABS system at work. It is supposed to prevent your wheels from locking which often makes the brake pulsate, especially in wet weather or or snow or ice. The only way to really stop this is to disable to ABS by unplugging it and removing the fuse. This will make the ABS light appear in your dash, but your brakes will stop pulsating.
