When I start the vehicle and drive in slow speed I can hear a whining


Asked by May 21, 2014 at 11:44 AM about the 2011 Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I start the vehicle and drive in slow speed I can hear a whining sound,I have gone back more that once to have fixed with no luck, independant mechnanic thinks could be transmission. I even went to another Ford dealer and they of course could not hear anything.  The noise is louder now.  I am thinking about recording the noise and sending to them and hope that will work.  I am at 70800.

Noises are the most elusive of creatures, bangs and grinds are usually much worse things to hear than whines and hums, Every driver gets used to the way their car feels and sounds and if you know that you are hearing something different then there is a problem starting. Check the obvious things like the colour.smell and level of the tranny fluid. I can't imagine you are into something major at 70000 miles and to be honest your mechanic probably isn't hearing anything because he didn't drive your car for 70000 miles on a daily basis. Keep your ears open and watch for any signs of eratic responses in driving but until it becomes more than a whine that only you recognize as being differest you are not going to get a diagnosis.(just being honest)


meant different (not differest)
