Brake Thumps and Pulsates


Asked by Oct 02, 2008 at 07:27 AM about the Lexus SC 300

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Brake thumps when applied, especially the last 200 ft. The check engine light comes on when stopping and it stalls, the symptoms seem to be all connected, Does anyone know what part I need to fix the brakes. It seems to be the right side, and Im not sure if I need calipers, rotors or something else.

I advise getting a good tech to look at the codes and the brake system. A good one will save you time and hassle with this problem. If you insist on doing it yourself then you will still need the codes and go from there. Not much help, but that's all you can do at the moment. Try getting the codes and that may shed a ton of light on the situation.
