Welcome to the forums.

I can't answer your question about the metering valve but your problem could be a defective flex hose.

Rubber brake lines break down internally and the pieces can cause a blockage.

gray2863,

Answer to your question is no. You'll damage the ABS system, and set multiple ABS error codes. I agree with the brake hose theory, but are you able to scan the ABS module, and post any error codes that could be set?

Thank You
Amy.
