why is it that when i come to a stop now my brake pedal feels like it is pulsating (almost like abs)?

i went to stave yesterday and everyday before that it has never done it untill yesterday when i was leaving stave and now it does it all the time?

the only good thing about it is that i have a really good pedal and the truck acctually stops when i want it to!

any insight would be greatly appreciated thanx

does it pulsate while braking or once you come to a complete stop?

warped rotor is it when brakes are applied and your still rolling, if its when you stopped, possubly something surging in your vaccum lines which connect to the booster ?

i had something funny to write here but a crackhead stole it.

Mine started doing that to, even though i have abs id never felt it before. I went in to have my tires ballenced because i knew the weights had fallen off and the mechanic came and got me and showed me that the bottom pin that holds my calpiper in place had almost fallen right out. He put a new one in and my peddal has been smooth ever since

there are abs sensors in each front wheel, and when they go they can cause your brake pedal to pulse as if the abs is activating too soon.
If pads and rotors aren't the problem, that could be it.

I think Crimsen asked the proper question, part of a diagnoses is knowing when it happens.

It could be all of the things listed above. It could also be others.


Before we tell mini what to buy or change, we should have all the facts :D

The simple thing is rotors and pads. The not so cheap part is sensors/accumulator. Could just be dirt.
