#3466 of 4149 Mazda Tribute Brakes Whine/Groan while stopped
Sep 11, 2006 (10:48 am)
Master Cylinder and break booster were replaced on 2003 Tribute as part of a recall. Since the replacement, now when I come to a complete stop, I hear a whining/groaning sound. As soon as I left off the pedal, the sound goes away. (almost sounds like some type of fan/blower turns on)
Typically appears after a bit of stop and go driving. Brought to dealer many times, and of course they cannot duplicate problem. Seems to be magnified when it rains. Service Tech friend says maybe vacuum leak. Anyone with similar problems?

Is what you are referring to the 100,000 mile drive-train warranty? I began having problems at 20,000 mi. they replaced the torque converter, then, another Ford dealer said that Ford said it should have the fluid replaced, they did. It still shudders hard at 1500 RPMs and now does a small "bump" sound every so often.
I would like to be armed when I go to them again. I am right at 90,000 miles

The tape solved my problem.
#3474 of 4149 Escape won't start when it rains
Sep 22, 2006 (1:57 pm)
I have a 2002 escape and every time it rains real hard or there is alot of moisture in the air, it will crank but will not turn over. if you crank it 4 or 5 times it eventually will start. I have talked to a mechanic about this, and he said there is moisture getting to the electrical part of the car. Has this happened to anyone here before? Ant information is greatly appreciated.

whenever we see this problem replacing the spark plug wires (and distributor cap and rotor on vehicles that have them) virtually always cures the problem. it seems that heat causes dry rotting of the insulation which allows the high voltage spark to escape thru minute cracks especially on damp days. hope this helps.
