If you have aftermarket wheels, it's highly important that the wheels are torqued to the specified settings. If this isn't done and they were just tightened down, the rotors instantly warp.

Fix noisy and pulsating brakes


If the brake pedal pulsates while high speed braking, the rotors are warped/out of round. This can also produce noise as it can cause the caliper to move back and forth. You either have poor quality/cheap parts installed or the parts were installed with improper lube on the slide assemblies and there is dirt/rust causing the pins not to move freely or the pad shims are old and rusted causing the pads to stick and overheat the rotors. Have the brakes inspected for the source of the problem

When i apply the brake on my07 chevy silverado the brake pulsation


Front brake rotors are warped, time to do a brakes job, make sure calipers float on pins and that you replace rotors, aftermarket are cheaper than G.M. but hold up just as well, change pads and lube the slides in calipers

I recently put new front brake pads and had rotors turned on the front end of my 2003 tundra sr5,after a month of driving i'm getting the pulsation when braking back which is why i made this repai


HI if you have pulsation after a month you must replace the rotors
they are too thin and the heat is warping them faster then before you
had them turned
note you replace brake pads and rotors

good luck

2004 Chevy Aveo The brake pedal pulsates and activates the ABS system when the brake is applied at low speeds


check rotor and brake pads. also check fluid level. one of those 3 causing problems.
more and likely its the rotor. its cheaper to buy new ones for around 20-30 dollars.
warped rotor will cause the pedal to ..pulsate. and more and likely you pads are wore.
when getting new rotor always put new shoes on so the rotor it can wear evenly.

I have had the front rotors resurfaced 2 or 3 times and replaced twice once with toyota parts-the pulsating always reappears after awhile when braking. What up with that?


its the disks or you call them rotors! there warped again harsh braking and stopping from high speed will warp the disks, having them "refased" is a wast of money!! that wont last five minuets,,,,puting on new disks and new pads will put it right, but stoping hard from hight speed will only warp them again also have your "abs" looked at as this could be were the problem is, and not the disk at all,

What causes pulsating brakes in a 96 subaru outback legacy 2.2?


Assuming you are not referring to the pulsation experienced when the anti-lock braking system engages, you should replace the rotors and the pads while you are at it. The days of turning or resurfacing rotors are over. They are cheap.

Pulsating pedal


Sounds like you got a warped rotor best to take them off and have them turned to true them up, its not out of the ordinary to get a warped rotor even if they are new.

Anti lock brake system


If the light is not on it may not be the ABS that is pulsating on slow braking but it may be that your have warped brake rotors, even if the rotors were replaced with the pads the new ones may be warped already, we always check new rotors on a brake lathe before installing them because we have seen this happen many times
