what can i do now ?
my car was shaking on the steering wheel while driving 20 mph or 60 mph. I was told to put on new brakes then rotors then calibers then brake hose . the shaking stopped but it seems like the gas petal and the brakes are not working together. I can drive it fine for a while then i can't get any get up and go. I 'm afraid to put my car on the interstate becaus it might not get up to the desired speed needed. any suggesting as to what it can be now ? running out of money and still have the same problem (sad)
it seem like the one brake is sticking. losing power because the gas pedel is makeing the car go and the brakes are trying to stop the car at the same time. any help?????
I was told it might be a splashblock ?? whatever that is. whatcontrol the 4 wheels to make sure the pressure is equal ? is there a hose that regulate pressure?
one rotor will spin when the tire is off but the passenger front will spin for a short time then sticks and completely stop turning.
if you've got a brake sticking it could be a piston problem and that wheel would get red hot. if it's a front one, it would definitely be pulling to one side. it could even be a problem in the brake distribution module. the shaking steering wheel at various speeds gives me the impression that the wheel balance is out. take it to a brake specialist before you spend any more money.
