      There is still a problem with the front rotors for sure, about the only thing that could feel similar to this is a very worn tie rod end but I doubt it. The rotors have to sit flush against the wheel hub without binding on the hub to rotor center hole because of rust or scale buildup.

      leave it alone and pay no attention to these ridiculous suggestions of replacing your power steering fluid for some package price of what..........49.95? $69.95? Power steering fluid is usually dark.

      Where did you get it ? Hate to say but they fit or they don't . No adjustment . If it don't fit it's not the right one . Set it next to the old one and see whats different .

      did you hit something to break a belt in your tire? make sure lug nuts are tight. build up of mud snow etc in your rims will cause this. clean out with hose or wire brush

      Weight will always effect the handling of a vehicle. You drive in it all day mostly by yourself and you become acustomed to it, Get a few people in it and you'll notice a slight lack in power, Steering and braking changes. More bodyroll etc. Its just the laws of physics. A heavier object will always build up more momentum, Take longer to accelerate and longer to slow down.

      Several possibilities; faulty water pump bearing, faulty alternator bearing, faulty idler / belt tensioner pulley. First step, raise the hood, start the engine in Park or Neutral and then just listen for the same sound at the front of the engine for the noise.

      I had the same problem too. It was the belt tensioner.

    What causes my steering wheel to shake when braking?
    When going down hill and braking my steering starts to shake. Does this have anything to do with needing brakes or power steering fluid?
     
    • Jimm

      Usually, the vibration while braking is due to warped front brake rotors. Simply replace them and the problem will be resolved. When replacing the front brake rotors, be sure to also replace the wheel seal (one at each side) and the wheel bearings at the same time.
      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.RockAuto.com or www.autopartswarehouse.com for the replacement parts.
      For example, they (Rock Auto) list the front brake rotor from around $16.00 and the wheel bearing from around $44.00 each - for your vehicle. Recommend to stick with name brands and the best quality parts for the brakes; look for; Raybestos, Timken, SKF, Bendix, Wagner, and Beck Arnley.
      Try the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the specific steps to replace the brake rotors - it's not a difficult task.
