Ford Escape 2005 vibrating noise at road speed

I drove about 600 miles this weekend and noticed an excessive vibrating noise from my vehicle. The vehicle isn't pulling to the right or left and the vibration is barely felt in the steering wheel but the noise inside the vehicle is quite noticeable. I have the same tires on the vehicle that came with it originally (about 50K ago) and I am thinking that it the problem. Should I have a mechanic look at it and give me an expert opinion or should I just have the tires changed?

Thank you.

Vibration in steering wheel when traveling over bumps or rouph road conditions. Most noticable at freeway speeds, going over expansion joints. 100,000 miles 4x4 5.7 hemi


I am assuming that the vibration is not constant?

Therefore we need to look at some loose suspension/steering parts like tie rods, ball joints and/or steering column.

If you wait a while you may find the concern is easier to find because you'll hear a clunking noise but this is not the safe path since the part is already failing

bottom line, if you do not have suspension/steering experience your best bet will be to take your vehicle to a good shop or dealer ASAP


let me know if I can be any further assistance.

I have a 2005 Ford Escape 4 wheel drive, I am now experiencing a womwomwom noise in the rare wheel when driving and it is getting louder, it almost sound like an helicopter hovering?.can some on help me...


You probably have more than one tire which is wearing out and when that happens, the sounds it makes changes too. The Escape of that year is not particularly quiet,and does have some road noise like that. But it is usually caused by the tires wearing and is normal, unless you are experiencing vibration.

1996 Ford E250 makes rough rumble noise on inclines or when speed


I'm thinking it may be the differential (rear end). With that many miles on the vehicle, it would not be uncommon for the u joints or differential to make noise due to increased tolerances from normal wear. I'd look into that. You may be surprized.

Good Luck and hope this helps.

I have front end vibration that is not caused by alignment. New tires on all four wheels but still have alot of front end vibration. Car is a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon.


just checked this out a while ago:



Wheel Hub Assemblies: Systems and Diagnosis of Worn Hub Assemblies & Bearings
Front wheel hub assemblies and bearings control the position of, and reduce the resistance of, vehicle wheels in contact with the pavement. When they fail, front wheels may not be kept in position and vibration and noise usually develop. Symptoms that normally develop as a result of these worn parts include:
  • A humming, rumbling or growling noise which increases with acceleration or as the vehicles turns
  • Vibration felt in the steering wheel, which changes with vehicle speed or as the vehicle turns
  • Looseness or excessive play in the steering wheel (especially while driving over rough road surfaces)
  • A loud, constant grinding noise when driving the vehicle (heard in the most severe cases of a wheel bearing failure)
  • Pulling to one side when braking.
  • Roughness - with the vehicle of the ground, roughness or vibration when rotating the wheel
  • Looseness - with the vehicle off the ground, looseness when wiggling the wheel back and forth (Looseness may also indicate a worn ball joint)
  • Excessive brake pedal play can also indicate sloppy or excessively loose wheel bearings
  • ABS failure in the system may be related to failure of the ABS sensor in the hub assembly or the internal sensor in the wheel bearing
