2005 chevy equinox shakes alittle when you first accelerate then quits but shakes and sounds like brakes grinding metal just took it to a tire place said brakes are fine
its my x wifes car ive sat in back passioner seat felt shaking when she left
my driveway then it sort of quit its like you can feel it going down the road
you cant feel anything in steering wheel she said no i even moved between
seats and held steering wheel seems fine to me but when you have to stop
its shakes and sounds like metal grinding like brakes plumb metal to metal
but her husband took it to a tire place he said they took wheels off said
brakes are fine i really think they did not but if so what other reason for this
said they had tires rotated im asking you cause my 15 yr old daughter rides
i think its the brakes
That what it sounds like to me if you hear grinding when you apply the brakes and shaking warped rotor. Is noise coming from the front or back ?
SWAMP_DOGGIE_DOGG 11:33 PM (9 minutes ago) to CarGurus well to answer that question ill say first thank you for responce ill say front wouldn't a warped rotor be due to metal to metal or something else ? also few times like it was hardly brake pads to stop her at lights or behind people and it jerked so she needs a new rotor or get it turned ? could there be more then 1 ?
A warped rotor can come from a seized up caliper or collapsed brake hose causing brake pad to stay in caged onto rotor heating up rotor causing it to warp resulting in the shaking when brakes are applied and the grinding come from the brake pad being worn down to the metal on brake pad. Best to just get new rotors.
