This would probably be caused by a warped brake disk.
it could possibly be caused by play in the ball joints, or play in the steering rack, but this would normally give shaking under power as well, and give uneven wear patterns on the front tyres.

you may need to get the brakes checked by a professional as a warp in the disk may be too small to see by eye, and the disks should be measured using a dial guage to ensure that they are still true

Your front discs may be warped, if that's the case they need to be turned (cut, so they are smooth again) or they need to be replaced

Sounds like the brake rotors are out of round you can take them to a machine shop and have them refaced or buy new ones.

My stearing oil leak away from my stearing system


Inspect the source of leakage. (Power steering pump,
clamps, discharge or high pressure pipe, suction or low side pipe, rack and pinion assembly).
- Vibrating while braking means the front wheel brake rotors are warped or rear brake drums are eccentric. (Tooling is required)

hi you have two sprat problems the first is the shaking at acceleration
you need to have front tiers checked and balanced that should fix the shacking.
and now the shacking when braking must likely it is brake rotors are heat damaged

My car is shaking when driving especially when I hit brake pedal the sterling wheel vibrates. What can be a problem?


If the car shakes while you are pressing the brakes, you likely have warped brake rotors (usually the front brakes are the culprit because they provide most of the stopping power and accumulate the most heat). If that's the case, you should have the rotors and pads replaced.

It is a common issue and relatively easy fix.

1999 Toyota Corolla Seca - hatchback. the tail


If you put your foot on the brake, the tail lights and parking lights will still come on. Possibly your brake is sticking. Check to see if it is and if it is put WD40 for a quick fix. See a tech for them to fix your brake alignment. Good Luck!

Hi, It sounds to me like the brake disc(s) could be warped or badly worn - it really needs to be inspected at a garage as soon as possible.D
