Either you have something on the rim causing the stutter, or your wheel needs to be trued up (much like balancing a car tire).

Identify cause of right rear wheel stuttering in turns (either direction) at low speed. No unusual noise.


Is your car a rear wheel drive? If so, the limited slip differential grease is low...if front wheel drive could be right rear strut/shock assembly is totally worn out...wheel bearing maybe, but usually makes a grinding noise...does applying the brakes affect this stuttering? Should be a free inspection at most quality repair shops...good that you notice this before it gets worse...

Stutter in front wheels when turning.


Sounds like your CV Joints are bad. First physical clue to look for is while the car is parked turn the steering wheel all the way right or left and look at the pivot point where front wheel turns at. If the boot is damaged and grease thrown all over underside of car (near CV Joint) See link it will show both a good boot and a torn one with grease.
CV Joint how it works symptoms problems


Good luck!

Sorry this is not a solution but I think you have a bad CV joint and wheel bearing on the front right. the only way you can find the problem is by pulling it apart. sorry

2003 300M hesitates or stutter stops when applying the brakes whats wrong?


If it has struts you might need to replace the front ones, if not then you might look into having your front end looked at, if all else fails get new front brakes and have the front end greased and new shockes aswell as have someone check the tie rod ends and check your steering wheel for any play when turning to the left or right if so then you need new tie rod ends .

Adjusting Padking Brake with 4 wheel disc brakes.


Hope this helps. This is out of the factory manual. Let me know if this works for you.
PARKING BRAKE NOTE: Tensioner adjustment is only necessary when the tensioner, or a cable has been replaced or disconnected for service. When adjustment is necessary, perform adjustment only as described in the following procedure. This is necessary to avoid faulty park brake operation.
  1. Raise vehicle.
  2. Fully back off cable tensioner adjusting nut at equalizer to create slack in cables.
  3. Remove rear wheel/tire assemblies. Remove brake calipers and rotors.
  4. Verify park brakes are in good condition and operating properly.
  5. Verify park brake cables operate freely and are not binding, or seized.
  6. Check park brake shoe adjustment.
  7. Reinstall rotors and make sure rotors turn freely.
  8. Reinstall brake calipers. Tighten guide pin bolts to 41 n·m (30 ft.lbs.)
  9. Reinstall wheel/tire assemblies after brake shoe adjustment is complete.
  10. Lower vehicle enough for access to park brake foot pedal. Fully apply park brakes
NOTE: Leave park brakes applied until adjustment is complete.
  1. Raise vehicle again.
  2. Mark tensioner rod 6.35 mm (1/4 in.) from edge of tensioner bracket Adjustment Mark On Cable Tensioner Rod
  3. Tighten adjusting nut at equalizer until mark on tensioner rod moves into alignment with tensioner bracket
CAUTION: Do not loosen, or tighten the tensioner adjusting nut for any reason after completing adjustment.
  1. Lower vehicle until rear wheels are 15-20 cm (6-8 in.) off shop floor.
  2. Release park brake foot pedal and verify that rear wheels rotate freely without drag. Verify pedal returns to fully released position.
  3. Lower the vehicle

How to put front breaks on a 1999 chevy automatic cavalier


Place the bike on a stand, disconnect the cable, remove the wheel, set the wheel brake side up, use the bolt slightly inserted in the drum, or two oposing screw drivers around the drum to pull it from the wheel. Once pulled, remove the springs and shoes,lightly sand the inner drum on the wheel, install new pads and springs, spray both drums with brake clean, reassemble drums and wheel, install the wheel, and then adjust cable tension and brake pressure at first the wheel, and then at the bars. Test and readjust as needed.
