Hi pamela.
Throbbing from vascular origin
A vein can produce this sensation because of the increased blood flow to a particular area due to physical activity - this can happened when you jog in the morning or after bodybuilding exercise or any other physical activity. When somebody tackles you during a football game and traumatizes your leg, the swelling can push on the vessels and this can produce a throbbing sensation. A trauma can also produce an abnormal communication between an artery and vein - this is called AV fistula.
Usually throbbing from vascular origin is not a reason to worry. You may visit a general practitioner who will probably examine the blood flow and may even order a test to look at your vessels.
Rarely the cause of throbbing is aneurism which produces a wide pulsatile area - aneurisms are often treated surgically.

  • It is useful to know that common conditions such as deep vein thrombosis, blood clots or peripheral artery disease usually do NOT present with throbbing sensation but usually present with pain and swelling.
Throbbing caused by muscle twitching
Turn off the lights, sit on a chair and use a direct light from a lamp and try to make the light beam horizontal so you can see the throbbing area clearly.
If you see tiny twitches you should know that your throbbing sensation is produced by your muscles.
Conditions causing muscle twitching
Although muscle twitches are often idiopathic or as a result of muscle hyperactivity or hyperexcitability because you had too much coffee or you had a heavy exercise earlier, muscle twitches can be a symptom of a serious medical conditions.
B12 deficiency. This is found especially in alcoholics or vegetarians. Muscle twitching is not an early symptom, usually B12 deficiency presents with anemia and decreased or altered sensation.
Multiple Sclerosis. Usually presents with pain behind one eye. Muscle twitching is a common symptom.
infection and Amyotophic Lateral Sclerosis also known to cause muscle twitches. It is advisable to see a neurologist for further evaluation, the neurologist is most likely to order MRI and blood test

SOURCE: brake pad pulsating

Possible causes- low spot on the rotors. Caliper pins not sliding with pulsation. May not need to replace pads.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: P0202 AND P0302 ERROR CODES. CHANGED SPARK PLUGS

P0202 is cylinder 2 injector circuit malfunction. And P0302 is cylinder 2 misfire.

The # 2 fuel injector is the problem not the spark plug.
Check to make sure the electrical connector is still plugged in to the injector. The injector is right below the the #2 plug. If you have an electrical tester check the Ohms between the two contacts on the injector. It should be around 12.
Another way to check your injector before you spend the money is to switch two of them. Just make sure that you get yourself a manual. It will guide you through the injector removal better then Something like this.
If it's any consolation I have a similar problem P0202. Unfortunately I have no compression in # 2 cylinder which means a possible blow head gasket. I'll be happy to trade you.

Good luck

Brakes pulsating


Hi,

If you have ABS on this vehicle which these models do, the brakes will ulsate if the pedal is depressed quite hard.

It does this because the ABS is working and it does make the brake pedal feel like its vibrating.

Hope this helps

ABS brakes not working


If you can feel the pedal pulsating and the light turns on the Abs is doin its job. if you want a better stop you could try a brake pad upgrade to ceramic pads and for even more stoping power add an after market drilled and sloted rotors.

The pulsating can be one of 2 problems, they feel very different, unfortunately, I can not feel what you feel, so here goes. One problem could be with your abs system, possibly diagnosed with an OBD II reader, the other could be warped rotors, but not likely since you replaced. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

My escape is making a grinding sound, along with pulsating when braking. My husband has replaced the abs sensor, and it is still doing te same thing. Any suggestions what to do next?


The grinding sound when braking is almost surely worn brake pads. If an abs sensor is bad it will set the abs light on. Heres an easy way to figure whether to look at the front or rear brakes first. When braking, take notice as to whether the vibration is felt more in the steering wheel or the seat. If it is more in the steering wheel take a look at your front brakes first, and obviously if it is felt in the seat look at the back brakes first. Both front and rear need to be checked out because the pulsating you are feeling is due to rotors or drums that have been heated up and warped. In order to fix both problems, you most likely will need brake pads and rotors/drums. If you just replace the pads, not only will the pads wear away faster due to the damage to the rotors/drums, but your vibration issue will not go away and infact may intensify.
