Question about Jaguar X-Type

1 Answer

2003 Jaguar X Type. real smooth until speed exceeds about 50 then slight vibration. Tires and brake rotors checked out OK. Was told (read) it may be in the drive shaft. New front end parts from the dealer. 87K no unusual tire wear at all. Any suggestions read that a new shaft may not solve problem. Can the U joints be the problem and be replaced without the shaft?

You don't install a new driveshaft

You have new joints installed and have it
checked for being straight, and have it balanced

No dealer will do that

Recently I have noticed that when I apply brakes at a speed of 50 and above I feel at the brake pedal a grinding feeling and car slightly pulls to a side . This car is my Audi A4 Quattro, Y registration....

When you get a vibration at high speeds when you hit the brakes the rotor/s are very slightly warped. Depending on miles, you may be able to get them turned / surfaced. One other thing is if you don't drive it to much, they can rust and cause the same problem. Hitting the brakes a few times on the highway will smooth them out.

Between 35 and 50 mph car has a vibration, It goes away above and below that speed. Tires have been balanced, and brakes and rotors cheched out OK. Can you suggest anything else.

Hi, have the drive shaft checked at a good drive train center. I have had problems with these in the past. You may also want to have the alignment checked a vech out of alignment can cause a shimmy and mistaken for a vibration. Hope this helps.

check balance of tires; if ok, have rotors refinished or replaced; most likely warped rotors if you can feel it in the brake pedal when braking

There is a vibration felt when stopping. Brakes

yes, the rotor may be warped.
Perhaps braking hard in rain or too many water puddles.

Brakes vibrate and lose pressure at very low speeds

First check your brake fluid level if its low add fluid. If this is OK have your front rotors check they may need turned have the pads checked at the same time. If your brake fluid was low you may have air in the brake line and they will need the air bled out.

Braking vibration. more severe at higher speeds/

Might want to have the ABS system checked. IF the vibration is also felt through the brake peddle by it surging I would suspect the ABS system is misreading and causing the vibration. Good luck and have a good day.

Vibration in brake pedal

The rear shoes and drum are not in even contact when braking, thus resulting into entire vehicle vibration. The most likely cause of misalignment is a warped rear drums. However, it is possible that the drums are ok, but rather the rear wheel bearings are worn or loose, this would likely cause misalignment between shoes and drums
