Question about 2003 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

Put on new pads and turned rotors. After about 50000 miles started feeling vibration when brakes applied. Over time got worse and put on two new rotors on front but didn't help. Thinking about taking in to dealer because local garage can't fix.

Your rear rotors/drums may need to be replaced, they maybe warped, causing the vibration.

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 have a 2004 alero and when I press on the brakes to stop at a red light or stop sign a vibration occurs and it's loud but when I put it in park it stops vibrating. What can I do about this problem?


Sounds like you have warped rotors and or a lose caliper mounting bolt . When you stop do you feel a vibration in the brake peddle or in the steering wheel or both ? IF you feel the pulsation in the brake peddle I would suspect a brake pad / brake rotor problem . Now if you do not feel it in either and the vibration is through the whole car with out the brakes being applied i would think it may be related to and engine/drive line problem (motor mount /trans mount /axle problem)

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.

Car shakes every time when appling brakes


The rotors are warped, need to replace them, also when the wheeles are put back on, the lug nuts need to be tourqued down to the specifications for that car, or the new rotors will warp again.

Vibration when brakes are applied.


I doubt it is a c/v joint. You may have a bad caliper. Drive arround the block and feel the temperature of the wheels. DO NOT FEEL THE ROTOR after driving it- it will burn your finger bad. touch the rim portion of the wheel. if no difference drive farther or when you get to or home from work. is the rotor blue or discolored? the pads could be binding in the mounting bracket and your slider pins could be frozen but this usually has a worn out inner pad.
check these and let me know... Good luck

Steering whell shimmies when brakes are applied


A common problem with brakes are the rotors warping,which causes a vibration when applying the brake pedal.The brake pads,clamp down on the brake rotor,which slows the vehicle,and in the process,both items are subjected to very high temperatures.This is what causes the rotors to warp,which in turn creates the vibration you feel.Best solution is to replace the rotors and pads,with new.The calipers,which hold the brake pads,should be checked by the technician to make sure the piston is working properly,and not leaking.The rubber hoses should also be checked,no cracks or leaks,etc.Good luck.
