Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 91 toyota tercel is shaking when i brake at a light or stop sign. I feel like my hand is vibrating on the streering wheel when i have my foot on the brake. When I accelerate the car wont go past 40 or 60k then i have to take my foot off the accelerator and put it back on for it to go faster. I seem like I have no power. What could be the problem?

First have the computer scanned for any possible codes....Auto Zone does this for free... if the car is running fine, you may have a brake caliper that is seizing up this would be followed by the horid smell of the brake pads burning and possibly the rotors being warped or defective caused by the brake system failure.
These are both good places to start to check before taking the vehicle out on the road again and having to face the possibility of a major break down.
Happy Motoring!!

My engine stalls and has a rough idle


In 1991 Tercel DLC is probably under the hood. Try to locate little gray (or black) box that has diagnostic written in the cover. Might be located near battery in 91 tercel.

WHEN I BRAKE BY A STOP STREET WITH MY 325TI BMW, THEN THERE IS SOME VIBRATION ON THE BRAKE PADDLE


Sounds like you may have warped front rotors. They can be felt in the brake pedal when stopping. The warpage of the rotor actually pushes the caliper piston in and out which is felt by your foot. Another vibration you may feel is the ABS system coming on if there are poor road surfaces.That feels quite a bit different than a warped rotor.

When I am driving on the highway and need to stop, my brakes vibrate. I do not hear anything but do have vibrating.


im asuming you are feeling the brake pedal pulseing under your foot,should'nt be to much vibration at the wheel.
most likely the brake rotors are warped they can me turned down at a shop, or sometimes almost as cheap to buy aftermarket replacements

I have a 1994 Toyota Tercel that shakes alot when idling at stop light. I put it in nuetral to stop shaking, but it seems to be shaking alittle now in nuetral. What can it be?


sounds like bad spark plug wires, with the engine running in neutral and emergency brake on, spray the top of the engine over the spark plug wires with a spray bottle of water, if the engine runs worse or stalls, or you see small sparks, then its the spark plug wires.

If I understand you correctly, you feel a vibration it the brake pedal when you apply the brakes. Is that correct?
Have your brake rotors re surfaced; they are warped.

"engine makes cavitating noise" ....what does this mean?
