The power brake booster has a bad valve. I can't suggest where to find a new valve for it, but you can buy a rebuilt replacement. They are usually not hard to put on.

    Hi,had the same problem with my 05 Escape,the power brake booster was repaired by my mechanic, he opened the booster and mended a cracked rubber seal, and i have been driving the car for the past 3months and the noise has not returned.Worthy of note,is that it cost me the equivalent of $10

Sounds like you got a wire or two in the wrong place. You might want to pull up the firing order for your engine, as well as a diagram depicting which wire goes where.

A/c will only blow through defrost


This is due to a bad vacuum hose that control the selector door, check under the hood for any hissing or broken lines and repair then start the engine and look under the dash on the pass/side and listen for hissing, theres a vacuum line that comes off the intake goes to the pass/side of engine compartment and in through firewall into pass/compartment and under the dash .check it. good luck.

Hissing sound on the drivers side. Goes away when you hit the brake.


I have had the same problem with my 05 Escape and it was actually the rubber boot behind the brake pedal that was torn if I started the car and pressed down on the brake with my hand and let it up I could feel the air coming off of the boot.
