Noise, 2005 Ford Escape

Bought the vehicle with 19,000. It was quieter when purchased. It now has
29,000 miles. Recently the noise has increased dramatically. Why?

1. Because you went from a noisier car to it, now you're used to it.

2. Because the tread had worn and you have more 'lug noise' on the highway
due to tire design

3. Who says there's no such thing as a stupid question?
- there's CERTAINLY ways of framing a question so it SOUNDS stupid.

Re: Noise, 2005 Ford Escape

You have accidentally changed your radio station from country and western
(or at least classic rock) to one featuring (c)rap music... adjusting the
controls should help.

You have 1000 miles from this post until your warranty vanishes ( unless you
bought extended). Conjecture can keep you going until the warranty
evaporates.... or you could go to the dealer and have it checked under
warranty. Of course they would also need a better description of your
concern.

Look at it this way.... if it was all that easy, I wouldn't have a job....

Maybe he has not checked the oil in 10,000 miles and it's slightly low.
Maybe he has a kid that poked a hole in the muffler.
Maybe the engine mounts are loose.
Maybe the hood is sprung open.
Maybe some under hood sound deadener has fallen off.
Maybe an exhause manifold has cracked.
Maybe he has oil dilution with fuel or coolant.

Maybe he'll be victimized by the first shop that tells him a tale and
charges him $1500.
My guess is it will be the latter.

Re: Noise, 2005 Ford Escape

Maybe he will realize that it is an 05 and should be under warranty....
Maybe some people will realize that not all shops are bandits but the good
ones get trampled by those seeking the low bid....

Al... what do you do for a living (and don't tell me shoe salesman)?.... I'm
sure we can trot out a volume or four of horror stories related to your
chosen vocation...
