Having problems with your 2001 Toyota Highlander ?
I AM EXPERIENCING PROBLEM WITH MY 2001 TOYOTA HIGHLANDER.
WHENEVER I STEP ON THE BRAKE IT PULSATES AND VIBRATES AND THE BRAKE PUSHES MY FOOT BACK. I KNOW CARS WITH ABS DO THIS BUT MINE IS JUST TOO FREQUENT. I ALSO NOTICED THIS HAPPENS WHENEVER THE SPEEDOMETER DROPS TO 20 MPH.I TOOK IT TO DIFFERENT MECHANICS BUT NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO FIX THE PROBLEM. ONE SAID IT IS CALIPER PROBLEM. ANOTHER SAID IT IS THE BRAKE DISCS THAT NEEDS GRINDING OR CHANGING.YET ANOTHER SAID THE WHOLE BRAKE SYSTEM NEEDS
Ok have ever had the breakes changed before or is there any squeling or grinding thats your brake pads are bad. as far as the whole brake system being replace thats ********* that mechanic is looking for a big bonus. im leaning towards a stuck or sticking calipar would cause it as well as if there is are in the system and will need to be bleed out. no if the roter's are warped u will know it cause the whole front end will shake when step on the brakes but only when u use the brakes. if you can see the brake roter's run your finger tip accros them they should be smooth with no groves or rigges if they have them the pads are bad as well as the roters and will need to be replaced, and a abs secner would kick in the abs. all in all i would take it to a shop u trust.
