Probably one or more bad motor or transmission mounts. You can brake torque the engine in reverse and drive, if the engine rocks violently in either step those mounts need replaced.

My front wheels and steering wheel shake when braking and accelerating...could you tell me what the problem is ?


maybe the tires, have them checked out. Sometimes if a rotor gets warped it will do the same thing. Hope this helps Tim

STEARING SEAMS TO BE STIFFER AND SHAKING COMING THROUGH THE STEARING WHEEL AND WHEN YOU APLAY THE BREAKS YOU CAN FEEL BUMPING THROUGH THE BREAK PEDAL AND ALSO FLIKEREING ON THE SPEEDO


you may have bad CV joints. Each halfshaft has an inner and outer cv joint. One halfshaft going to each front wheel. Check to see if the rubber boots are split and all the grease leaked out.

1997 Ford Aerostar...rattle in front wheels...rattle stops when I step on the brakes... Also...vibration when I accelerate and when I slow down.


Hello, it sounds like you have a possible wheel bearing or brake problem. first support the van on jackstands and shake the front tires, if you feel alot of play in the wheel bearings they may need to be tightened up, this is done by using a torque wrench to set the bearing load, if you need to get the torque sequence it can be found in the repair manuals at auto parts stores. if you shake the wheels and it feels tight with no excessive play it may be a brake issue, you need to look at the backing plate to make sure it isnt rubbing on the rotor.

Ford escort estate, when applying the gas the car moves to the left or right. even more so when slight turning and applying the gas the car is all over the place


If I understand correctly the steering wheel must be held in different positions to keep the car going straight while accelerating/braking accelerate hold wheel to one side ...braking hold wheel to other side. check strut mount(rubber mount on top of strut where it contacts car body)

WHEN I APPLY BRAKES FRONT END SHAKES


A few possibilities
1. Front disc's may be warped
2. Rear drums may be out of shape
Easy way to check gently pull the handbrake lever when going forward if the drums are out of shape you will feel vibration through the lever.
3. Front wheel bearings may have excessive play
4. Suspension component(s) worn
wishbone bushes are a common failiure on Escort's
Hope this helps
Best wishes

Wheels in the front of a 1994 ford aerostar shake when coming to a stop from speeds of 40/70 miles a hour, also the steering wheel shakes.


The front break rotors are causing this..
You need to have the break rotors turned - or replaced if they cannot be turned..

Slight shimmy while driving, but intensifies when braking


This could be caused by worn front end parts, and or unbalanced tires. to test with engine off the key in the ignition switch turned to the run position turn the wheel back and forth not enough to move the tires, if the steering wheel moves more than 2 inches then you have a problem and I can tel you how to test the front end parts to determine how to fix. If it's worse with the brakes applied then it is just amplifying the problem.
