It seems like your brake rotors are warped, have you ever had your brake rotors turned?

    i was thinking the same way until i replaced all four rotors and pads, and got the same shake no better no worse. The brake pedal does not pulsate and i have checked the run out on the,
    wheels, rotors and hub, all are within spec. any ideas

  • Boneebone Jun 03, 2010

    I think it may be the transmission or motor mounts since you did say your shift handle is moving around when you are braking and we can eliminate anything with the brakes. I suggest trying to rotate your front tires to the back and vice versa to see if your tires are at fault.

Brake pedal shakes/pulsates


warped brake rotors. don't resurface just replace them. if the steering wheel shakes its the front, if the seat of your pants shakes its the rear. in most cases the front will warp first

2005 Chevy impala brake pedal pulsation with brand new rotors installed


Is your ABS working properly? Under heavy braking the ABS should engage and 'pulse' the brakes on/off. It is normal to feel the brake petal flutter or pulse under your foot.

Under light braking there should be no pulsing as the ABS does not engage and you have changed the rotors and pads.

2005 nissan altima shakes when i get on my brakes


if it does this especially when going down hills your brake rotors are warped and need to be resurfaced or replaced. Is it your whole car shaking or just the steering wheel? Is the brake pedal pulsating as you push it down harder? all points to the rotors...auto parts stores will resurface them for you if they can.

Strong Shutter or Pulsation when applying brakes


Have you checked the rear brakes? They can cause shaking just like the front can.

Brake pedal and steering wheel pulsate and shudders when braking lightly


You need to put a dial indicator on the wheel hub.Rotating the hub will show any run out.Run out can be repaired with shims or replacing the hub or hubs.If hubs pass the run out test,the replacement rotors now have to pass the run out test.Check the rear while you are at it too.

What would make the car pulsate when breaking while the brakes and rotors appear good.


Normally this is caused by uneven rotors or drums, replacing brakes and not resurfacing drums

or rotors, or replacing drums or rotors, old brake fluid in system, not flushing out lines, dirty

brake fluid causing brake calipers to hang-up. inproperly installed brakes, not torqueing down

the bolts, loose bolts. good luck!

Replaced the right front wheel bearing after pulling the old one it was bad, Tire store said it was not the tires that was causing the virbration, replaced pads and rotors now the virbration feels like...


Could be the inner cup of the cv shaft or the carrier bearing if your vehicle has a halfshaft before the cv axle. If your getting pedal pulsation it must be a bad rotor. Now it should only do it when brakes are applied. Ive seen cases where the pads are very new and the rotor is so warped it will pulsate abd vibrate even withouth applying brakes. Other possobilty is that spindle was damaged and warped/ bent while pressing in new hub bearing.

I feel shaking in brake pedal of my 99 rodeo and squealing


Most likely cause is out of round brake rotors.
They will need to be resurfaced or replaced to correct the pulsation you feel in the pedal.
One other cause I can think of is the ABS (anti lock brake system) is activating due to possibly a bad wheel speed sensor.
You can disconnect the power connector at the ABS control unit and road test the vehicle.
If the pulsation is still there than it is not an ABS problem.
