Getting the Wheeling Fever
A few months ago I noticed the proportioning valve (located near the master cylinder and has a blue and white electrical cable hooked to it) had blown the rubber cap off and had leaked out some brake fluid. I am thinking that the valve is bad and that I need to replace it but I cannot find the part at any stores. Does anyone know if this is a sign of the proportioning valve failing and if so where I can buy one?

Thanks for the help!!!
I'll post up some pictures tomorrow.

I'm sorry. I posted before, then deleted for lack of info. Is the leak comming from the switch in the porportioning valve? If so, maybe the dealer can sell just the switch. Or you can find a number for said switch. If it's not the switch, maybe seals, but i would say being a break part, just replace it and be sure. Good luck brother. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

The leak is coming from where the little rubber plug was on the proportioning valve before it blew off. I used a zip tie and an RCA plug(see pics) to cap it off for now so it doesn't leak as much. I hope the pictures help. BTW the dealer wants $308.16 for the proportioning valve by itself and Les Schwab will do it all for $463 so I am looking for any way to do this cheaper.

Thanks for help!

Sorry, didn't know the thing was that much. I guess i should've expected that from the dealer though. If it were me, since i have two vehicles, i would consider taking that fitting out and see if a seal or oring could fix it. But still being a brake part can be scary. Again, good luck. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

P.s. A second look at the pictures, that looks like the antilock brake part. With the soelenoids on it.

I was told that this part was the proportioning valve for the rear brakes which I think are the wheels with abs. I wish there was a 1996 Sportage in a pick-n-pull around here but the closest I could find was a 1998 which I don't think has the same valve. This is my only car right now so I don't know when I could take it apart and see if I could fix it.

Thanks for the advice. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Try this place, you can probably find a place that will ship one to you.
