Customer Question
Today I bought a...

Today I bought a used 2005 Ford Escape hybrid with 130K ***** ***** on it. It passed the state inspection and I trusted the dealer it came from. Tonight though each time I've opened the door there is a sound like something adjusting. I found your post from two years ago and am sick to my stomach. Could this be that expense ABS pump problem?

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

It didn't happen when we test drove the car, nor when we came to pick it up. This sound just started tonight after it sat for about two hours in our garage.

Hello, when this noise happens can you feel it if you press on the brake?

No I cannot.
Ford Mechanic: James, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Hmm it's tough to say without being there. If the noise is close to the driver side brake pedal but under the hood it can be the abs module. They can fail and make a constant noise from time to time.

This only makes a noise when I open the door, so far. The car runs and brakes fine.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
wouldn't a warning light/indicator go on if the ABS module was failing?
Ford Mechanic: James, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

What kind of noise does it make when you open the door?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
