Can bad 02 sensors cause the engine to vibrate and make a humming noise? or bad motor mounts


Bad O2 sensors affect the fuel/air mixture. Vibrations can be caused by many sources, hard to diagnose here. To test the motor mounts. apply the parking brake, open the hood. Put the car in drive and step on the brake with one foot while applying full throttle with the gas pedal. Watch for excessive engine lifting on one side. Be careful not to have the engine fan to contact the shroud. Now do the same in reverse. If the engine lifts excessively, your mounts are shot. If the engine stays put with only a slight movement from torque, then the mounts are good.

The check engine light stays on after oil change. When you apply the brakes the steering wheel vibrates and there is a weird humming type noise coming from the rear while idling.


Hope the oil filter was changed and with the OE type and the correct oil grade.
If so the oil pressure switch can be clogged and so produce the check engine light.
When applying brakes the steering vibrates as it can be due to faulty linkages in steering column, problem in the hydralics pump or fault in the steering rod bearings.
finally the weird noise from rear can be from a faulty exhaust , leak or poor joint in the exhaust or vibration of the exhaust with loose mountings.

Replaced rear brake cyl.blead brakes.pumping noise[humming]when brakes applied hard


It is possible you have air in the anti-lock system. Bleed using the procedures spelled out in the repair manual. It's good to clean up all the fluid from time to time anyway.

Clicking noise coming from the Engine and car shakes when stoppin


Probably a disc brake pad scraping on a warped rotor as it goes around. When you apply the brakes the warped rotor causes the car to pulse or shake as the rotor goes around and applies the brake unevenly. You need a front brake job.
