Brakes on 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

When I am breaking and the vehicle slows down to 5 mph I get a noise and a pulsating sensation on my break peddle. What is going to need repaired. It does sound like a pump is running on low volumes of liquid. The brake reservoir is adequate

You need to have the brake system inspected. It sounds like you have warped or worn out rotors and very worn brake pads. The brake system needs to be evaluated. Since this is a safety issue on a safety system, it would be best to have a shop do this, to be sure that you are repairing the vehicle in a safe manner.

A good Brake Inspection should Check the run out of the Hubs and clearance of the wheel Speed Sensors, at least that is what I include in my Brake Inspections.

Chances are that because of a faulty anti-lock/traction control module on the front hub being a POS and not allowing the computer to read correct wheel revolution the first thought is rotors. Wrong, it is the front hubs unfortunately caused due to the mickey mouse design of the sensor use to pick-up whell revolutions for the anti-lock break system.

In the last 2 years I have resurfaced (2x) and replaced (2x) my rotors on my 2005 Equinox. In May 2010 they warrantied my 'after market' rotors and now in December 2010 the rotors are already warped again and need replaced. I am at a loss and need some direction....PLEASE! The brake pads were replaced in May 2008 and one company is telling me that the pads are likely the cause (however the company says the pads look in good condition). Thank you in advance for your help!
