My 2006 Ford Freestyle sounds like it would if you sucked a necklace up in a vacuum cleaner and it suck of the brush
I was driving home last night and from under the hood it started making this awful noise like a pop can full of rocks being shaken or like a necklace got sucked up in a vacuum and hung up on the brush. It only does this in drive, not reverse, not park, not Neutral. Shifts into all gears beautifully and idles like a champ...Freaking out I have only had this car 4 months, I love it I saved up for a long time to buy it, I do not think it is the transmission....hope not as it is AWD, CVT, any ideas?

That sounds like a vacuum leak. Check all the hoses, and the power brake booster, listen around while engine is idling to find source of vacuum leak. Once leak is repaired, you may need the trouble codes cleared.
Check the TBI base gasket, these were known for sucking in near the vacuum hoses in the front. Use a tube to your ear to pinpoint the base of the TBI or spray carb cleaner at the base it will change the idle when it sucks in the cleaner. I will check back to see if this solves the problem. code 13 can be for the O2 not cycling between rich and lean. Vacuum leaks cause lean condition.
That sucking sound means that either the vacuum line is disconnected or the diaphragm is bad. Vacuum diaphragm in the vacuum booster being bad means you have to replace the sealed booster completely by removing the master cylinder from it, unbolt the booster from the firewall, and put a new one on. Then re-apply the master cylinder and connect the vacuum hose to it. You're done.
It very well could be a vac leak or a problem with the air filter box. If you can make the sound happen sitting in park, have someone listen around the engine compartment with a section of heater hose while you operate the controls.
You should be able to hear a sucking sound from where the line is supposed to go. Probably on the base of the carby. You can spray a little aero start around where you think the leak might be ie: carby. the aero start will be sucked into the open vacume port & the revs of the motor will change. Sorry I don't know exactly where it goes.
Sounds like trouble, check to see if overdrive button is on ,turn off and see if anything changes, but it sounds like transmission failure, go to a shop, you could try getting fluid completely sucked out and replaced also.
Tom, Generally, this is caused by either a vacuum leak somewhere on the top of the engine or dirty fuel injectors. Listen carefully for a vacuum leak [sucking air sound] at or near the top of the engine. Another way to locate a vacuum leak is to spray carburetor cleaner [aerosol can] at small areas, where there are vacuum hoses or intake gaskets. When you find the area of the leak, the carb cleaner will get sucked into the leak. This will generally cause the engine to run better. Try adding fuel injection cleaner to the gasoline tank. I recommend the Chevron Techron brand of fuel injection cleaner. Advance Auto and Costco carry this brand.
sounds like you have a bad vacuum leak. Look under the hood and listen to where the hiss or sucking sound maybe coming from. Use your hands and move the vacuum hoses around a little and hear for louder sound. It's hard to pinpoint the exact vacuum hose but there's only a few.
No solution. Just got the EXACT same issue last weekend. myfordfreestyle notes said to remove air intake and clean throttle body with basic tb cleaner. seemed to help, but getting some more engine reving during routine shift into park situations.
