One more problem. My Nissan Fuga vibrates when I step on the brake pedal at high speed. Does this mean I have worn out brake pads/disks?

Not necessarily
if you have abs brakes it is the pulsations as the wheels lock and unlock from the abs activity
this transmits as a pulsation under your foot
it may also mean that the discs have warped and the warp is pushing the piston back in then letting the piston out
it is more noticeable at low speed light pressure stops but it depends on the speed
Take the vehicle to an accredited brake shop specialist and get a proper diagnosis done

When your Cadillac shakes when you start it what usually wrong


  • Knowing the warning signs of impending trouble can go a long way toward keeping your car from a highway breakdown.

    You need to develop an awareness of how your car should sound. For instance, when you turn the key to start, the gear like sound of the starter motor engaging should be smooth and sound like an electric motor working hard to crank the engine. If you notice a different sound - more like a grinding - chances are you have a starter motor problem about to happen. Let's say you're driving along and you feel the steering wheel vibrating at certain speeds. The onset of this subtle vibration could tip you off to a tire that needs to be balanced, worn steering linkage or a bulge in a tire that may be about to blow out. In any case, the vibration needs attention. Normally you shouldn't notice the sound of the exhaust system. A sudden change in your car's sound, therefore, isn't something to ignore.

    Suppose you're used to a pleasant hum, then, perhaps after a bump or when starting up the car one morning, there's a loud roaring that sound like a hot rod without a muffler. The harder you press the gas pedal. The louder the noise becomes. A noisy exhaust means the exhaust gases are blowing out under the car rather than at the rear of the car - a dangerous condition. Brakes play their own warning tune. On many cars, a scratching noise coming from the wheels that stops when you stop pressing on the brake pedal is caused by a low-brake warning device. Its purpose is to warn you that you need front brake pads. A loud grinding noise when you step on the brake pedal is an alarm that your brakes need immediate attention. The grinding noise occurs when the brake pads are totally worn away and the metal of the brake pad backing plate rubs directly on the brake rotor.

    Ignoring grinding brakes can be a costly - or even deadly - error. Shock absorbers help keep the car steady and balanced while the wheels roll over bumps and ruts. Their modern counterpart, the MacPherson strut, does essentially the same thing. You might not notice worn shocks or struts when you're simply riding around town. The safety effect of these devices comes into play at higher speeds. When you hit a bump, the tire wants to bounce like a basketball. Worn shocks or struts allow the ties to bounce out of control making steering difficult and braking less effective.

    What you may notice is the car rocking more every time you stop, assuming an almost boat like quality. Old, broken or worn out shocks and struts should be replaced to ensure safe steering and braking at higher speeds. Engine noises are easiest to hear when the car is not moving. Transmission sounds or brake noises usually occur when the car is moving. Pay attention to any new sound and keep notes - how it sounds, when it makes the sound and what difference, if any, occurs in driving when the noise is present - to help you describe it to your service dealer.

Why does my brake pedal have to much travel?


one reason is that the master cylinder is leaking between the chambers and means the rubber seals in there are worn.

number 2 : brake pads worn and disks bent so when wheel spinning the pads are pushed off so it takes more for the pedal to travel


number 3:the pads are not good quality and splitting as the metal and the material on the metal resulting to similar case as number 2


or

what it feels like if you are breaking?

low speed jumping on the breake is it blocking all the wheels sreight ?

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee and when I leave in the morning their is a vibration in the front tires that lasts about 10-20 seconds.It feels like the tires are skipping


If it's a vibration, it might be a brake pad staying in contact with the disk. Normally the pads push away when the car starts moving. (A normal condition called "runout") Try stopping your Jeep tonite by using only rear brakes. (hand brake) Don't step on the brake pedal at all. Then see if it does it in the morning. Don't step on the brake pedal in the morning till the test 20 sec's is over.

If the problem is a thump thump sound it's probably a tire flat spot from setting. Have the tires just been replaced? Could be a softer tirs material.

Why is the break sometimes high and sometimes low


not sure if you mean while driving or when parked with the ignition off but here are a couple reasons on why the brake pedal may be high and low at different times. If the vehicle is running the brake pedal will feel the same just about every time. If the car is off and you step on the brakes it will get harder and harder to push down since there is no vacuum assist. Another reason would be the brake pad thickness. New brakes the pedal will feel higher where as worn brake pads the pedal may feel lower. Another reason would be if you have air in the brake lines. this will make the pedal feel mushy and soft at first and firm up as you pump the brakes. Hope this helps.

Renault clio abs light comes on with vibration through brake pedal. discs and pads renewed


How hard are you stepping on the brake pedal? What you are describing sounds like the ABS system activating. When you step on the pedal hard enough to engage the ABS the light will come on, in some cars it will blink. You will also feel the thumping/vibration in the pedal since the system works by repeatedly engaging and disengaging the brakes. If it is happening when you step lightly on the brakes then you may have a bad wheel speed sensor or possibly a bad or miss-adjusted brake switch.

VIBRATING BRAKES ON A 2005 HONDA ODESSY


The Odyssey is known to have some problem with brakes.
A vibration can be caused by a broken or deformed disk or pads at the end of their life.
It can also be a problem with abs.
In any case such a problem with brakes can compromise the safety of the vehicle, I think you should take it to the nearest garage for a checkup.
