Vibration when braking

So the other day my friend and I were just cruising and when we got to our destination, looking for parking, I was on drive (automatic) and I braked, keeping the car idle. This weird vibration came that had never occurred. It was shaking the car but not necessarily hard. What could it possibly be? Should I be worried?

Time to do the pads and rotors. Don't use duracrap, they have runout problems. I find that Raybestos rotors (rockauto has them) are superior for a price that won't kill you.

I did all four corners for $50th and have had 0 dust issues. Seem to be a solid pad.

I've had REALLY good luck with Raybestos rotors and Centric Posi-Quiet pads. No dust, really good stopping, no noise at all either.

I have a squeak occasionally but that is my own Damn fault because I didn't have lubrication and I couldn't buy any at the time lol. Rockauto is great

Well I know my brakes are wearing out but it only happens when my car is at a complete stop. That's why I never thought of it being the brakes

So wait there is a vibe in the car when you are at a complete stop? Put the car in neutral and see if it increases with the RPM of the engine.

Hmmm if it happens in D but not in N when you are stopped with your foot on the brake that sounds like a converter or trans issue...

What do your RPMs do when this happens? If your RPMS are fluttering above normal idle speed when this happens then you have a plethora of EFI and computer related problems to choose from that it could possibly be.

If your Idle speed is normal, then you have a torque converter problem.

Either way, you got EFI and an automatic transmission so what your car does is virtually out of your hands lol.

What does "out of your hands" mean

My Rpms do not jump what so ever when it happens. The car just shakes a little bit

^He hates computer systems and autos and means that the computer will be controlling engine functions vs the user... Even though if something breaks on a carb'd 5 speed it will still act up just the same.


At any rate... I'd guess converter or internal trans issue but first I'd pull codes and see if its just a simple sensor issue. Could be something really easy. Just because your check engine light isn't on does not mean there won't be a fault code in the computer.
