Question about 2002 Ford Escape
Hi - My Escape started to stutter when I was braking from 20+mph to a stop as if the ABS was engaged. The brake fluid had been leaking so I had the master cylinder replaced. Now there are no leaks but I still have the stutter stop problem. I also hear a clicking sound when I brake. It didn't happen for 1 day after the master cylinder was replaced. The mechanic has checked the brakes twice and they look fine. He said that no codes are showing for the ABS module. I don't know what to do at this point. Any ideas? Thanks
Warped disc replace both front disc and brake pads it will be fine

check the abs rings on the axles they have a tendency to crack and will set a light. does the vehicle have remote start? Is it an aftermarket system?

Have you had anyone try to clean and adjust the rear brakes? You will need a shop to scan the van for ABS codes first to cure the ABS light.

Does sound like you need a new master cylinder. On a 2000 you wont need to back bleed. You will just need to follow the instruction and bleed the master and all four points. you will probably need to bleed the ABS block and proportioning valve but only if they have bleeders on them.

There is a special tool required to bleed the brakes, it plugs into the ABS hydraulic control under the hood and holds the ABS valves open to remove the trapped air during bleeding, u will need to have the dealer bleed the brakes, they are most likely the only ones that will have this special too, but u can try an outside shop, I am sure Snap on tools makes this tool in the aftermarket tool catagory..
