Re:"brake pads and disks are ok."

Well, you will better be sure that pads and disk are OK, that is the most common reason causing this problem. Often newly fitted pads can cause the problem until they adapt their shape to the disk.

Other than that, if vibration is only on breaking, bleed fluid, then check the wheels and joints, the master cylinder and the prop valve. The valve fails very rarely. Bleed and replace brake fluid and check master cylinder.

Medium vibration coming from the front and through steering during braking from high speed.

2 things spring to mind. If stopping under heavy brakes ,the abs could be working giving you the impression of vibration But I am inclined to go with warped disc rotors. They give the impression of pulsations under you foot and will vibrate the steering to a degree. Check discs for condition ans check pads for lining thickness Anything under 1/4 of original thickness should be replaced

My car vibrate at 100-120km/hr i have bought new tires and done the wheel balncing but it still vibrate and whenever i tried to apply the break at this speed it vibrate serously. it's a 2001 mazda mpv

This is due to poor settings of the wheel bearings,tyres,- check balancing once again, wheel drums/ brake pads,suspension , joints and steering.
In all the entire front suspension must be checked, the WHELL ALIGNMENT must be checked with precision and each of the wheels must be checked for damage on hub, axle or chassis.

Steering wheel shakes at high speed when brakes are applied

This is caused by the front disk brake rotors being warped from heat and running out of true, the wobble of the warped rotors causes the wheel to shake when you apply the brakes, it is worse the higher the speed you apply them at. Have the front rotors machined flat again or just replace them.

I'm replacing the brake pads but don't have money for new discs right now. Is it ok to put on new pads for a couple of weeks and then new discs?

Disk's and pads are the same thing,Brake pads,Brake disk.
Are you meaning the rotor?
If you are the answer is yes,you don't have to replace the rotors unless you have a rotor brake vibration when you are applying the brakes on your car.
If you do want to change rotors later,you can but remember to take sand paper to the previous new pads,because they were used and got hot and hard they will now score the new rotors,that is why you sand the pads.

I changed the pads and roters and i still have a noise like the brake is grinding

How many miles do you have on the Olds? Many people assume just changing the pads on the high miles car and not having the rotors turn its not good idea. Don't get me wrong, it will work and do what its suppose to although if its was me I would have it done. If you were able to replace your pads then you should also be able to take the rotors off. It doesn't cost much to have the rotor turn and its worth having it done knowing that would cured your squealing or grinding problems and also it will make your brake pad last allot longer better stoping and reduce any vibration as long as your rotors is not warp. Since you still feel and hear the brake still grinding it does not sound right. What type of pad did you installed? I hope you did not installed a pad call "life time guaranteed" which its simi metallic pad and it will grind your rotors down to nothing. I called it steel pad and that is what is made off. What you need to do is get the car going at the high speed like 65 mph on the back road some where and apply heavy breaking come to a complete stop, NOTE: unless you have ABS "Do Not Lock the Brakes Up". do this couple of times this will break the pads in and that should solved some of your problems. If you getting smoke comming out from your pad its fine..

Front end vibrates when braking

I turn them on a brake lathe in my shop whenever I change brake pads for customers. Heavy repeated braking will make em warp and vibrate like that. also changing the pads without turning them on a lathe will often leave them warped. Usually caused by either overheating during heavy braking effort or very commonly, using too heavy an impact wrench to tighten the lug nuts up. Did u get your tires changed recently? if so, dont go there again. their impact wrench is not set right and is likely overtightening the lug nuts.
Get a local garage/NAPA to turn the rotors and replace the pads. If the vibration is very severe you will have to replace the rotors.
Hope this helps if so pls rate my answer!

Skweeking brakes

Several possible causes:
  1. Did you use copper-based brake grease on the brake pins and the back of the pads?
  2. Did you clean all the old gunk off the brake pins and after doing so, where they deeply grooved? If so, you must replace them.
  3. Wrong brake pads. Some pad manufacturers list a patricular pad as being OK for a vehicle. They fit OK but the pad characteristics are wrong and they squeal like crazy or wear out in no time or give lousy raking performance etc.
  4. If the pads you removed had anti-squeal shims on the back of them did the new ones? They almost certainly should have. IIRC, they are held to the pads by some double-sided adhesive tape.
  5. If you get squeak-silence-squeak-silence... at low speed (i.e. just before coming to a halt) then the disk(s) is/are distorted. They will have to be replaced. You must not machine the discs on these brakes - there is no thickness available to do that. If you do tthey may well collapse under the heavy braking of an emergency stop with very unfortunate consequences!
  6. As someone said, the disc may be badly worn and/or grooved -check and replace if necessary.
  7. You may have a stone or piece of grit stuck between a pad and a disc. If so & it's worn a groove in the disc,you will need to replace both disc and pad.
  8. Make sure you torqued any brake bolts correctly and that you put thread sealant on them. Failure to do so can lead to them loosening in normal use. The brakes may squeak for a while if this happens but then things can get much worse...

The Odyssey is known to have some problem with brakes.
A vibration can be caused by a broken or deformed disk or pads at the end of their life.
It can also be a problem with abs.
In any case such a problem with brakes can compromise the safety of the vehicle, I think you should take it to the nearest garage for a checkup.
