Issue with the front of the car shaking when I push on the brake petal while im stopped and in drive
I have an issue with the front of the car shaking when I push on the brake petal while im stopped and in drive. The shaking is worse when I am downhill. So today I replaced the front brake pads and front rotors. I still have the shaking but not as bad.
**The shaking does not happen when I am in any other gear only when I am in drive while stopped and pushing on brake petal.**
Please let me know if you can help diagnose :)
.... I feel have been ripped off be several mechanics "bait and switch" salesmen! ha ha
You're stopped and in gear. Brakes and hub are stationary. They won't cause shaking. The engine is running and that is what is shaking. I suspect loose motor and transmission mounts.
Thanks for all these answers :) * Perhaps axeles,both constant velocity joint? * Wheel bearing need repacked? Some of these issues have recently been fixed (see below) and are under warranty (maybe the "new motor and transmission mounts" were not replaced properly due to a "horribly bad" bait and switch" mechanic ) MITSUBISHI Eclipse 1997 Turbo Convertible MINT CONDITION - 62,000 miles Black/Tan leather Interior Alloy Mitsubishi Rims/New Wheels Kick Ass Stereo System Quality Tires Fog Lights Power Automatic Windows/Roof (1 previous owner for 13 years) new transmission mount new rack and pinion new valve cover gasket new R/R transmission gasket new battery holder 2 new motor mounts 4 new brake pads 2 new front rotors new complete head gasket new oil cooler unit new water pump new bypass hose
funny how the motor and transmission mounts were recently replaced, perhaps a "bad mechanic" definitely going back as under warranty and will have to be replaced again or money refunded that's for sure. Thanks!
