    Get a second opinion someplace else first.

    Hey thanks. As it turns out a tire shop said it was the Abs pump. The mechanic was able to narrow it down to the master cylinder as the culprit.

    Just had $1800 worth of work done a few months ago. Got one other opinion as well. Thanks again. Hopefully I'll get to the bottom of this before I have to sell my other explorer ('97) to pay for it! Lol!
