2000 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 109000 miles
I bought a 2000 Ford Explorer used and have no service history. When I bought the vehicle I met the seller at a public location and the car was warm and had no problems. Now, after owning it a few days, I have a problem with the brakes failing, but only when the SUV is cold. After I start the car and put it into drive, the brakes get stiff and lose all power to stop the vehicle. I can hear the brakes against the metal rotors. I push them hard a few times and the petal eventually foes to the ground and regains power. The problem goes away until the next time I start the car. I replaced the rear brake pads, rotors, parking brakes and spring kits. I also bled the brakes using two people starting at the furthest wheel. It appears the previous owner had replaced the master cylinder. Someone mentioned it could be air or moisture in the ABS motor as the previous owner did not drive the vehicle for at least a year prior to selling. Do you have any idea what the problem is?
have the same problem?
