Re: 2005 Escape Rattle
Have you gone under the vehicle and taken a look at all?
Make sure the wheel lug nuts are tight, wheel bearings can do weird things when they go, some make some noise, some sound like a train as speed increases so I wouldn't rule out a rattling sound.
You can test for a bad bearing yourself by lifting the tire off the ground, placing a hand at the top and along the bottom of the tire/wheel and trying to shake it back and fourth. If it doesn't move, that's a good sign, if it does move, even slightly, a bearing is most likely your culprit.
If you can look under the vehicle, chances are you'll see if something isn't connected as it should be and causing the sound you hear. Also be sure that the plastic wheel well liners are secured.
