Question about 2006 Ford Escape

1 Answer

Whistling noise coming from the engine compartment on a 2006 Ford Escape. The noise usually comes and goes. Mostly when the truck is idling or when I accelerate. I've been told it's a vacuum leak. Firestone told me it was my brakes power booster, Just brakes said "no way" it's coming from somewhere else.

A whistling noise will be a vacuum leak from some point. The Escapes are known for having vacuum issues in the rear of the engine due heat caused from the motor. The lines dry and crack out.

There is a loud whistling noise and shaking when idling, cel comes on and car will stall


Possible vacuum leak from one of the hoses causing unmetered air to enter the engine. Look under hood in engine compartment and listen for noise to see if it may lead to a disconnected/collapsed hose resulting in a vacuum leak and repair/reconnect as necessary

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.

Whistling sound coming from right rear


Checking Window Seals - The window seals (weather stripping) in your car are used to seal the water and wind for entering the passenger compartment. When these seals fail from damage or are eroded by the weather they can allow wind noise to enter the passenger compartment. This failure can cause a whistling noise as the car is driven. Some noises are only present when the vehicle is driven at certain speeds such as 55 MPH. These whistling noises can be difficult to find since you are driving at the time. Have a passenger help with the diagnosis by running their hand along the area the noise is being generated from. Once the noise source has been located replace or repair the failed seal and recheck.

We find ourselves on the Alaskan Hwy, at Ft. Nelson. Yesterday we noticed a whistling noise coming from what appears to be brake compartment and when you apply the brake or turn the steering wheel, it...


Hi,
A whislting noise would make me suspect a cracked or broken vaccuum line. Whistling as it sucks air into the system. I would check the biggest one first, on your brake booster. It is a large line coming from the engine to the brake booster assembly located behing the brake master cylinder. I would check all the lines with engine running, have a helper rev the engine slightly while you listen in the engine compartment to see if you can locate it. Also work the brakes simultaneously. Cold weather can make older lines crack which can cause a serious problem depending on which line cracks or breaks. Check all your air lines first and see if you find it in that system before assuming something more major. A crack in other engine system lines will usually produce a fluid leak of some type.....Good luck!..Mike

Low whistling sound coming from engine compartment when idling but goes away as soon as you hit the accelarator


Sounds like there is a leaking vacuum hose some where on the engine...Put your face next to the engine or the general point of sound and go from there. But be ware of moving parts like the belts and fan with loose clothing....bad things come from wearing loose clothing next to stuff like that...:0
