Question about 1995 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

On 2 separate occasions in the last month while I was driving my car suddenly starts violently shaking like I'm driving over a washboard. It lasts for about 10-15 seconds, goes away for about 10-15 seconds, and repeated like that 4 or 5 times. Immediately after that happens my brakes don't work very well for the first time I step on them. As if there is air in the lines or the brake pad is further away from the rotor. Once I step down on the spongy brake a couple times it's back to normal. The first time it happened I had cruise control on but not engaged. I didn't use cruise control again until the day of or the day before the 2nd time it happened but when it happened the second time I had my cruise control on and engaged. Once I turned the cruise off, the problem stopped happening within a minute or two. When I bought the rodeo it had 3 size 16 rims and one size 15 rim (on the driver's rear) and the 15" wheel seems to be where the intense vibrating is coming from. When I got home, the rim was very hot to the touch but otherwise looked normal. My RrABS and BRAKE lights are on most of the time on the dash but I have noticed them going off on a few rare occasions but they always come back on within seconds. I've been told the problem could be a wheel bearing, bad wheel speed sensor, or just the wheel being the wrong size. I'd like to know if the wheel is precisely the problem, or if it could be related to the cruise control, a bad bearing, etc

Ok your problem is with the wheel the wheel speed sensor is reading a different speed prolly 1-2 mph difference so the dump valve in the abs is triggering i would change that wheel fast or youll be putting brake pads/shoes on that side very quickly. once you change the wheel pull the abs fuses or battery cable for 5 minutes then you should be good to go.as far as the spongyness pedal it will go away soon as the wheel is changed. if you still have the abs and brake light on you will need to pull some codes for us to help you some more.you 15" wheel is spinning faster then the 16" wheel the faster you go the bigger the difference will be between the 2.hope to hear good new back from ya.

Raise the vehicle off the ground, wiggle front tires left and right, excessive play tells you tie rods, up and down tells the wheel bearing condition, but have another set of eyes looking on the inside while wiggling tires, too see excessive play. Lower ball joint can be seen during this test. And make sure wheel spins freely, siezed brake calipers can make higher speeds shake too. Lastly look at centre drive shaft condition. Hope this solves thr mystery. HTV Auto Body

My brother's van shakes violently while driving. What can he do to fix this? He has a 1990 plymouth voyager.


There are many steering and suspension parts that can cause shaking while driving. Tires with belt separations can cause severe shaking. It could be anything from a bad CV Joint to a broken trailing arm. My recommendation is to have the steering and suspension inspected by a professional.

i would start with checking the axles because most of them have a abs ring on them which will trigger the abs light. also make sure your axles are in good shape. last resort would be that you need new tires because the steel bands inside are starting to seperate. good luck
