heavy pulsating

Postby chewse » Mon Sep 09, 2013 7:03 pm

when i come to stop when travelling at very low speeds( like when parking the car) the brake pedal pulsates very heavily and car doesnt stop right away feels like front wheels are locking and sliding on d road..... could this be an abs issue.? brake work normally when travelling at normal speeds this only happens at very low/ crawl speeds

could be warped disc's, if you go over 80 and brake heavy ish does it do it then
or could take car to mot/nct test station and get them to put it on the brake test machine they will tell you if there warped or not straight away

Doesn't happen at speed or normaling driving at all happens mostly when comin to slow stops like crawling thru a parking lot....it has gotten to a point where it is very predictable and doesn't just happen at random

sounds like the master cylinder or air in the brake line!!
