That is not your motor mounts. It is most likely one of the following:

shocks worn
worn control arm bushings
tie rods need greased (try this first) If your tie rods do not have a grease zerk go to a parts store and tell them you need a hypodermic needle for a grease gun and you will have to puncture the boot and then put 3-4 squirts of grease. the hole will not allow grease to leak out, it is perfectly fine. If you would rather not do this your only other option would be to replace the tie rods.

    Thanks. I had suspension checked - all OK apparently. Mechanic suggested engine mounts after seeing a note on the Mazda website (Tribute same vehicle) referring to this type of noise. Thanks again

Motor mounts, shackles, shock mounts, etc., can all do this, because there is a steel inner sleeve that gets tight on the hold down bolt. These bolts should really be greased. However, since it is hard to get grease on them after the fact, without also getting on the rubber, I suggest silicon spray. It will flow into all the tight spaces, and should help the rubber as well as lubricating the bolt.

If it really is the motor mounts, then you should be able to get it to do it by reving the engine when not moving.
If the suspension, then you should be able to get it to do it just by having 2 people bounce on the bumper.

Find a shop with a 'rolling road' or 'electric chassis ears'.

Chassis ears are microphones you place under or around the car and drive it listening to each microphone to locate the noise.

Rolling road you can listen whilst going nowhere.

Sound like you have a collapsed engine mount allowing engine to rub somewhere.

I get a grinding noise and slight vibrations that I can feel under my feet. This usually happens at low speeds, but has become more noticeable now at c. 30 mph.


You need wheel bearings.. One for sure maybe 2. Do you feel it in the steering wheel or floor? The floor usually means rear and the steering wheel usually means front. Hope this helps. It should change pitch when you drive left to right at a steady speed. :-) Cobra

I get a squeaking noise when i turn the steering wheel right or left. replaced struts, and stablizer link rod on 2001 ford escape


I have a 2002 Escape V6. I had a squeak when turning... even when standing still. It was fairly low mileage: 40,000 miles?
It was the outer tie rod. You could feel it squeak in your hand while someone else turned the steering wheel.
I disconnected the tie rod. I wasn't worn, just squeaky. I squirted a little WD40 inside the boot, and worked it in. Reassembled and squeak gone.
I bought a replacement tie rod, but never had to put it on. I'm now at 110,000 miles.

Rattle under the front end?


The rattle may be stabilizer link rod bushings or a strut mount loosening up as for the engine light you must hook up a code reader to determine the problem otherwise you may be replacing parts blindly.

Possibly have a bad speed sensor or something else. You will need to have it hooked to a computer to find out what is going on with it.
