My mechanic says my truck needs a new pressure metering valve so that brake fluid can get to the back brakes. This part is outrageously expensive, almost $300.00.

Add the labor and it is a huge repair bill. Where is this part located and how hard is it to change out? I just want to be informed before I go ahead with a repair. The front brakes are operational, so I can drive it if I am careful.

Is the Ford Company the only place to get this part? Thank you.

Metering valve is only for the ffront brakes. Delays pressure to front wheels till pressure in system bulids up then it brings fluid to front to prevent the brakes form locking up.

Follow the brake lines from the master cylinder. Youll find it.

Get the part form a junk yard.

Check wiht a autopart store to see if you can find a new one cheaper.
