My honda jazz is giving me a problem.when i am by the stop and i accelerate when its green light i feel a shake on the front end wheel.have have changed the tyres i did alignment but still the same

I'm guessing there's a delay in the front brakes releasing when you take your foot off the brakes. Try this experiment. In a large parking area (like a shopping center) where you can give yourself plenty of braking distance, use your emergency (parking) brakes to bring your car to a stop. The parking brakes only operates the rear brakes. When you come to a complete stop, accelerate and see if you still feel this shake on the front steering axle. If the symptom stops when you only use the rear brakes, then the brake master cylinder is not releasing the hydraulic pressure on the front brakes when you take your foot off the brake pedal. Who ever did your tires and alignment job should have suspected this, assuming you mentioned this symptom to them.
You spelled t-y-r-e-s which indicates you originated from Australia or UK England. In USA & Canada, we spell t-i-r-e-s. Put another shrimp on the barbie for me :-)

Service brakes are not releasing or releasing very slowly causing the front wheels to overheat. I have replaced both front calipers and pads. Still have this issue. While wheels were off I had an...

How about the rubber flex hoses

They collapse inside after 15 years or so
& sometimes the clamps around them rust
& squeeze them in.

The fluid may come out under pressure but not
return releasing the caliper properly

You need the engine running,a helper & not
pump the brakes when bleeding.

If the hoses are not real old ,bleed the system again

You need to remove all rust on sliding surfaces, also
& use anti-seize where things move & slide

Front brakes stuck on (1994 toyota corolla) getting hot and smells terrible it is snowing and -30 at the moment could this be the cause

If your front brakes are froze on then the calipers are not releasing. Most common cause is a bad master cylinder. you may be able to bleed your brakes but most likely you will need to replace your master cylinder

Changed front brakes on 2000 grand cherokee, bled brakes, and pedal seems spongier than normal

You still have air in the brakes,start at the master cylinder,then the rear,right wheel,left rear,and right front,then the left front.Make sure the calipers are releasing completely ,if they are not,then a brake hose could be bad.

Front brakes not releasing properly.

Sounds like the caliper needs replaced. Sometimes the pistons lock in the caliper and cause the brakes to drag. When the mechanic changed the brakes before, he pushed the pistons in all the way to accomodate the new brake pads. Now that they are wearing back down, it is getting to the warped spot in the caliper and starting to stick.
