Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

1 Answer

Clattering out of left front on braking

When I apply the brakes it sound like the ABS kicks in and brake pedal goes to the floor. It happens on dry pavement and just before it cames to a complete stop. I just changed the rotors and pads and it is still happening.

    The calipers are fine. No air in the system. The pedal is hard until the clattering starts and then the pedal gets soft. It's as if the ABS is kicking in.

Left front abs brake locking up on dry pavement and pedal goes to floor, also making a grinding noise almost like wheel rubbing on wheel well but its not. i have new brakes and rotors put on 2 months ago...


Hi,

You may have a problem with your abs pump. When the pump malfunctions, it causes the car to do what you are experiencing.


Hope that helps.

It sounds like you have a bad mastercylinder cause when you panic brake it doesn't have time to bleed through the valve in the cylinder but under normal braking your foot is on pedal longer in turn giving the fluid time to bypass the valve in the mastercylinder in turn the pedal going to the floor.

94 s10 chevy 2wd brake pedal fades to floor before stoping


Might check around the big black round muffin shaped chamber adjacent to the master cylinder for a loose vacuum hose or crack therin; the hissing sound seems likely to be the air rushing in as you loose the vacuum that supplies the power to assist your braking effort (power brakes)---as this goes, so goes your peddle until it reaches the actual piston pushing the brake fluid (which should be firm like with non-power brakes).
...maybe have an assistant push on the peddle while you listen with a piece of hose or a stethescope to find the leak (or I suppose the power unit diaphragm could be shot/leaking--hence replacement), but since you said after bumpy road etc, one could hope for a simple dislodged vacuum hose or fixable crack.

Abs malfunctioning


Sounds like you have a speed sensor with excessive air gap between the sensor and the pick-up wheel. These are usually sealed in the hubs. Check all you hub assemblies for excessive play. Excessive air gap will cause overactive ABS function.

2002 Rendezvous, brakes feels like the ABS are working on snow, b


you may want to have someone look at your wheel speed sensors
the may not be reading correctly

if the computer see's that the wheel speed of the two axles are not in sequence when your braking this may cause the abs to kick in and it goes the same when your accelerating but the traction control comes into play(TC)
