Hello all, I am hoping someone can turn me in the right direction about this issue. I drive a 2006 Honda accord. Recently the car had a few things fixed. And when I got it back it shook a lot. They said it would be the new parts adjusting and once they broke in within a few days the shaking would stop. Well over a couple weeks passed and nothing stopped. The shaking only occurs when the car is NOT going above 10 mph. As soon as I put a little gas the shaking stops. Not only is it annoying, but very worrisome.

And while I can't provide the list of all the got fixed right now, the car was taken back to the mechanic that worked on it and they had it for almost three days and couldn't change a thing. I am planning on taking it else where now, since I since had to move. But I do not know much about the problems it could be and would like some sort of idea of what it could be since I won't be able to take it in for at least another couple weeks.

I had a weird feel with the car today. It was just noticeable for a minute or two where the brake seemed to get stiffer (usually very sensitive braking) and the shaking stopped. I was getting really excited but then the next time I braked it went back to sensitive braking and the vibrations.

So any ideas help, even if you have had something similar and got it fixed. Thanks in advance!

What "few'' things fixed? Problem instantly and THAT excuse is unacceptable to me.

Seems from your observations that the vacuum line, check valve or brake booster is leaking vacuum as a first guess and place to look.

Try this: Feel power assist when engine is running. Shut it off and feel for one or more pushes with assist and note if none. Press until assist is gone. Then hold brake pedal and start you should note the assist back. If not like that problem is about surely isolated to items mentioned. Weak hose higher as if touched from working near it could have broken. That shouldn't take any THREE days to not notice by a tech!
