SOURCE: idle , lever on 'drive'' - vibration

if your vehicle isn't a convertible and the newer model (E90) the idle speed should be able to be increased. your vehicle has valvetronic. It doesn't use a throttle valve in the typical manner. there is a motor that changes the valve lift of the intake valve (this system takes the place of how a typical throttle works); if you have an E46 the older style 3 series the idle speed cannot be changed. An easy way to tell if you have an E46 or an E90 is that you have a start-stop button with the E90 and the key is a remote that pushed into the dash.

SOURCE: applying brakes on 1997 ford F150 causes vehicle to bounce.

Brother-in-law had new rear brakes and drums put on his 150 for the same reason, here they were puting them on wrong, they were puting the washer for the e brake lever on the outside instead of in between, and the were'nt releasing, So use the e brake to stop, if it vibrates with the e brake you eliminated you hydralics.

SOURCE: 94 toyota camry vibration in steering column

Check all your engine mounts, including the dog bone at the top front of the motor. One way is to put it in neutral or park, securely chock the wheels, handbrake on, and have someone rev the motor while you look for excessive movement in the motor itself and its mountings.

Also your steering rack mounts while you are at it. This can be done by having someone firmly wind the steering wheel back and forth (ignition key in and on ACC) while you inspect the movement allowed by the rack mounts.

It is hard to be certain, but your brake discs may have become warped. This causes a pulsating feeling in the pedal. They can be replaced fairly easily.

1997 Toyota camry vibrates when i brake hard.

You are on the right track with the struts. With 212,000 miles, it is a great possibility that your shocks are worn out. With extra weight in the car, the shocks are suppose to keep the car from "bottoming out".

The creaking noises can also be caused by this and will be worse in cold weather. Does the creaking seem to go away a bit when you have been driving for a bit? When the gas in the chamber of the shocks warms up it expands and is able to hold the car up better.

Now, for the main problem. Usually vibration when braking is cause by warped or damaged rotors. The damaged rotors have probably caused the brakes to go bad as well. You can have a mechanic look at the rotors to see if they can be turned which will give them a flat surface. They may have to be replaced. Other causes could be the tie rod wearing out or wheel bearings wearing out. If the only time the car vibrates is when you brake, then more than likely it is your rotors. The ABS sensor is located very close to these components. It is likely that it is a faulty code and can be erased. The sensor may have been damage due to the excessive vibration. I recommend finding a mechanic very soon to look at your rotors.

If it has drum brakes get the drums machined or if it has discs get the discs machined to stop the vibration as with age and heat and water splashes over time the discs and or drums go out of round causing the pads(discs) shoes (drum brakes)to cause a vibration when they are applied,

My brakes squeak in my toyota camry. How do I get

I am assuming you already changed the brake pads. Make sure that the backing plate is on the backside of the pads it wouldnt hurt to put some disc brake quiet (spray) on the backside of the pads. also make sure all of your caliper shims are in place and not rubbing on the rotor. Make sure rotors have been resurfaced or replaced if they are too thin. any imperfections will cause vibration which will cause noise. Some cheap brake pads will squeek no matter what you do. in this case I recomend ceramic brake pads the best price I have found is at pep boys this type of brake pad is superior and very quiet, stays cooler, less brake dust on rims and much better braking. I use pep boys ceramic pads on my customers cars and have had no complaints from them. where with cheaper quality pads it is hit and miss that is why i tell my customers up front if they want the cheaper pads they should expect some noise from time to time and not to be alarmed. It doesnt mean anything is wrong just too much vibration and heat while braking
