My car (99' Dodge Durango) vibrates when I excellarates, and when I apply the brakes (slowing down) the car starts to shake I have an idea that it has something to do with the front end of the car but not to sure where and how to pinpoint the problem. What can be the problem?

The shaking when you apply the brakes indicates a warped rotor which is what the brake pad rubs against to stop the vehicle. The shaking on acceleration could be tire related or it could still be the rotors if the brake pads haven't released yet. Inspect the rotors by removing the tire. Hold your finger nail close to the surface of the rotor and turn the rotor noticing if the distance from the rotor to your finger changes. It should be the same all the way around. If it's not the same it is warped. Warping is caused by overheating of the rotor caused by excessive braking or pads not releasing all the way.

2005 stratus squeaks in front end over bumps and car shakes when slowing from speeds of 35mph and over


The noise would usually be the strut or the control arm bushings. The vibration could also be the component making the noise, or warped brake rotors.

MY 2005 EQUINOX AWD front right wheel intermittent braking and shaking


Could be caused by a sticking/failing CV joint. If you check boots and see cracks or tears most likely the Joint then got debris which could lead to failure.
Confirm that it FEELS like brakes are active but your NOT applying brakes. If this is the case then my thought on CV joint would be first check. I had one fail a few years ago and it was similar. Vibration started and then I could feel the vehicle slowing.

If you ARE applying brakes and you fee the shudder or vibration then it may be related to a tie rod end. A worn tie rod allows the wheel to go off track slightly and the result we feel when driving is a shudder or vibration.

Hope this helps guide to a solution.

Truck shakes when brake is applied upon slowing down it gets shakier until i let off the brake and pulse the brakes till truck stops


A common cause for the vibration when braking is when front brake pads are replaced, but the brake rotors were not resurfaced smooth. Overtime when braking, the new pad will wear into the rotor that was not cut. The uncut rotor, having high and low spots when turning, will cause the brake pedal to vibrate/pulse when stopping.

Squeeling noise in one of the wheels on a 2007 Dodge Durango.


If its a lite squeel and goes away when brakes are applied. Have you had front brakes put on recently. If you have and the rotors were not replaced and turned. Alot of mechanics don't do the final cross hatching on the rotors when they are done turning. This will barke in the pads wrong and cause this even with expensive pads. It will cause premature glazing and have a squeel that will drive you crazy.

1999 Dodge Intrepid brake vibration


Yeah this can be an alignment problem,because in that case while applying brakes the car slows down and starts vibrating. but it only happens at higher speeds or too low speeds. If your car vibrates on the normal speeds,get your braking pads checked first  and then the whole braking system. Check if its working properly..

99 Dodge Durango Dies When Slowing


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
