What does it mean when I come to a comelete stop and my car rumbles.


it rumbles as you are about to stop, well that depends.

if there is a vibration AS you are applying the brakes, and about to reach a stop, it could be that your brake rotors need machining, or "turned"; however, in this case, you would also hear a grinding, as well as feel the grinding through your foot.

there is also a "rumbling" associated with a strut mount gone bad; however, this is more of an audible clanking, and is also audible when driving slow on a bumpy road, and not really specifically in the process of stopping.

for either of these, please stop using your radio, and possibly open the windows, to better describe the sound.

IF the car shakes when sitting at a stoplight, or such, please watch your rpm gauge (tachometer), and see if the idle speed is exceptionally low or erratic.

if this is the case, it may be that your throttle positioning sensor, mass airflow sensor, or the like, is malfunctioning, and is giving a warm engine a fuel/air mix appropriate for a cold engine.

Check your disc brake pads to see if they are down to the wear indicaters. When brakes are worn it creates a metal on metal grinding sound when vehicle picks up speed but will intermittenly stop when pressure is applied to brakes. Note that front brakes will be replaced 2 to 3 times more often than back brakes due to the front brakes being your primary souce of stopping power.

My 2004 Silverado is displaying a similar issue - but it grinds loudly on either a sharp left or right turn at slow speed - it feels like it is winding itself up terribly then releasing that energy in burst as it skips & hops along. If you shut the truck off in this position, then try to restart it, it will lurch forward a good foot as soon as you turn the key. I have no idea what the problem is

When turning at slow speeds, my pontiac sunfire 1998 makes a thump or clunk from my left front wheel well, could this be steering problems or a strut thqt needs to be replaced?


If the car is front wheel drive then the problem would be in the CV joint. If not front wheel drive then it could be anything in that left wheel. Brakes, bearings, strut, bushings whatever else there is.

Everytime im driving slow and i brake my brakes grind and i have to press hard to come to a stop. it rarely happens when im going at higher speeds although it has happened. Whats the problem?


normally grinding and a hard pedal mean excessive wear on the brake pads, you wont feel it as much at higher speeds, at low speads its more previlant due to the pressure......check front pads first, the rear ones usually wear a lot slower
