A much bigger and more pricey problem. The pads could have been stuck in the perches or the slides could have been frozen, or maybe even a sticky caliper. Still leaning on alignment, but haven't gotten it done yet, maybe next week. The current and failure mileages were 72483. Last time I changed 2 enginge mountings but this vibration is not because of mounting,its coming from engine.
Next stop, putting the 17's back on to see if it gets any worse or better after the alignment. Toyota will notify the Toyota, Scion and Lexus owners. Your problem sounds like disk brakes unevenly worn. The recall began on October 27, 2014. . The vehicle wanders into the left or right lanes and driver must fight to keep the vehicle in a straight line. Paul answered 5 years ago I figured ill pack down the responses some more and say I agree with the others about the tires.
The alignment was checked and determined to be fine. On my way into work this morning, I exited the highway at 65mph and applied the brakes. Hood only had been repainted due to hail damage 5 years ago. Bearings were making a grinding noise. Thanks for your reply Chele. Easy-slip on installation will fit most standard size steering wheels with a 14.
I've had this issue with this before due to lateral runout on the rotors. And this is not the only time this has happened a few more times on my way to work. I've read about the engine mounts, transmission problems, etc. Anyway, all fixed now so I'm happy. After I replaced the battery the steering returned to normal. This is just a suggestion; there are alot of ways to balance a tire on the new machines. I was able to snap them back in.
Belt tension was then loose. Some say warped rotors, some suggest replacing control arm bushings and others think its a stuck caliper. My thoughts are to take it to a transmission shop and have them check it out. I will never buy another Toyota. KyTony answered 2 months ago I had this problem with my old 2007 Toyota Matrix Base 192k.
I replaced the caliper piston seals recently and everything inside looked fantastic and worked smoothly. It used to vibrate but none of the mechanics could not diagnose the problem took it to a professional guy he said the coils are a problem or the injector. Anyone ever come up with the solution to this other than running through all the brake parts, bushings, etc. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331, or Pontiac customer service at 1-800-762-2737. When I bought my last car, the Prius, the tires were out of balance but the vibrations were much much worse. Front bearing repaired some time ago but still happens - usually when slowing from hwy speeds.
Cover has double stitching and a rubber backing for added durability. They use hunter machines and no more shake! I would have the front disk brakes rectified. Sounded like tire noise, escalated in volume rapidly in 5 days before repair. First off, I'm glad to hear that your problem was solved, Rob! Only thing that is left I can think of is the left front Wheel Bearing? Update, post concerning engine leak and dye test. Reason I say strange but true is because 90% of the time a shake is not alignment related but rotational related tire, wheel, rotor, drive axel, etc. Quote, originally posted by rob454 Â»When I bought my Vibe, I had the same shake aroud 60mph, it got worse at 65 and stopped at 70mph.
Our 2009 Sienna also had the water pump fail. I got the car home, and called for service at my local dealerships. If anyone has had experience with this and it wasn't the rotors being warped please help and say what you had to do to fix this!! We just inherited a 96 Corolla. How about if you apply light pressure to the brakes while hitting the gas enough to hold the speed in the shake range? Never died, started right up, quiet engine, ride, etc. They are only on their 2nd season mounted on basic steel rims from Canadian Tire - so I can't imagine they are so worn or unbalanced as to cause this. I noticed that the car did not shake below about 45 mph but again attributed the shaking I experienced to my car fighting against winds.
