    I recently purchased a 2005 Ford Escape and have had the same problem. Some high pitched noise coming from from drivers front motor. It happens mostly when accelerating at low speeds between 20 to 40 mph. It also does it when you turn the engine on & off too. It's like it releasing pressure. or something and the RPM Gauge never goes to the 0 position when the car is turned off. I had a Ford Thunderbird & Explorer 10-15 years each and I've never experienced anything like it before.

A/C -Heater controls
Has you are aware the A/C Clutch compressor is engaged at all times when the defrost mode is turned on. Turn off all heater controls. If the noise is gone it will be either the Air conditioner compressor clutch bearing or possible the idler pulley bearing .

I get a whistling noise i think is coming from throttle body

Your whistling is quite possibly a vacuumn hose leak on the passenger's side, top of the engine. Look closely at the hose connections coming from the PCV. Small holes can develop in these vacuum line connections, and you will experience a rough idle, as well as the "whistling" noises.

My 1999 Dodge Caravan is making a high winding pitch noise when aclerating? Belts in good shape, what is the noise, it's really loud.

This sounds like a power steering issue. Check the fluid and if it is full then the pump may be going out. The way to check if the problem is the power steering is to turn the wheel while the engine is running. If the pitch changes then it is a power steering issue. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Low oil pressure after engine warms.....

A 1999 Yukon DOES NOT have a vacuum advance. It is computer controlled timing. Low oil pressure is the result of some or all of the following : worn oil pump, worn cam bearings, worn crank bearings. Oil pressure also normally drops as engine warms because the viscosity of the oil changes with temperature.

It sounds like the car was ran out of oil.The engine bearings and crankshaft journal are probably scarred.The noise you are hearing is more than likely a piston rod slapping around about to break loose from the crankshaft.So,yes the engine is toast...Sorry..Good Luck!!!
