Car is not running right

  • 2.5L
  • V6

  • 155,055 MILES
When I would go 50-55 mph the wheel would shake.
My brakes didn't work one day while backing up. (Had to use my emergency brake to drive it home).
On the way home when I would use the brakes it felt like the car was jumping and shaking and also really loud.
Drove fine, just not when I applied the brakes.
Also sounds like maybe a rotor or wheel bearing but I'm not sure.
When the car was jacked up, you could easily turn the tire but it was catching somewhere and not as easy to turn when that area came around.
*Unrelated issue*
Please help! I'm not a car expert and really only know the basics. I have a child on the way and need a safe vehicle. Also if any parts needed, how much would I be looking at to buy the parts and also what would I need? I'm in Ohio if that'll give me a better estimate of how much I would have to spend.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good morning,

It sounds like your rotors are out of round causing most of your issues with the shaking.

I attached a guide to help you with the repair. is the best place to buy your parts.


Brake Rotor Replacement
Removal Procedure
1. Remove two-thirds of the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir using a siphon.
2. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting.
3. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.

5. Remove the 2 mounting bolts, the caliper (1), and the caliper bracket (2).
6. Lift the caliper and the caliper bracket, along with the brake pads, off of the rotor.

Notice: Do not allow the brake components to hang from the flexible brake hoses. Damage to the brake hoses could result.

7. Suspend the caliper and the caliper bracket (1) with a wire (2) in order to prevent damage to the brake hose.
8. Remove the brake rotor from the wheel hub. If necessary, install two 8 mm bolts into the rotor. Tighten the bolts in order to force the rotor off of the wheel hub.
