I'm not a car guy and am concerned with my brakes. I don't have any money to see my mechanic currently, so I'm stuck with the internet to help me. Basically, as the title suggests, my brakes are a bit funky. Like they thud and squeak. Example will be when I'm slowing down, from anything over 30mph, it thuds. Like thumps. If you watched Bambi, remember Thumper thumping his foot down and telling Bambi his name? Pretty much sounds like that. Not smooth.
Now it also makes a squeak sound when releasing pressure. Just like a rusty door that's in need of oil.
It's really bad when I'm on the highway and need to slow down. Thud-thud-thud. VERY hard. I get there's a brake issue, since my granmas car did the same thing, but I'm just curious as to suggestions.
And I know this is unrelated to brakes, but when I accelerate it vibrates. It's really bad when my friends in the car with me. With him, it heavily vibrates when I try going over 30. Alone, it vibrates when I start going over 45. I just learned it usually stops or doesn't as hard if I slowly speed up but curious as to any reasons for that.
I will be seeing my uncle about these issues sooner or later, when MN decides to stop playing with this snow (as I type this it's snowing!!!
) and I can safely drive to where he's at. So if I need to see a mechanic, will do soon. But any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
