SOURCE: high pitch sound

Front wheel bearings. We have a 2004 Limited and ended up getting both replaced (at different times) paid for by Ford. We only had 40,000 km on the vehicle at the time and had to fight Ford to cover the cost. The did come through in the end.

Check your power steering fluid level, and system for leaks. May be a bad p/s pump as well. Hope this helps

No Adjustments. The shocks are just too Soft. Replace them with the Originals From Factory and they will be better. They get softer the longer they are used.

you might need a stethiscope to hear where this is coming from could be a idler or maybe the tensioner or maybe the alternator .. none of these would bother power

That Squeeling is your Belt. You may need a New Belt Tensioner to keep it Tighter. As a Quick fix, Go to your Auto Parts Store and get a Can of Fan Belt Dressing and spray this on the Belt and it will be Quite for a while. Please Rate my Solution, I need all the Help I can Get! Thanks!

SOURCE: I have a high pitched noise which appears to be

Could be several things. WHICH ENGINE?.. 4 cylinder (has three belts, power steering/water pump, alternator & A/C compressor, one tensioner pully A/C compressor), The V6 2.7 (has only one belt, 1 Idler pully and 1 tensioner pully), the V6 3.5 has two belts - A/C/alternator, and power steering - there are two tensioner pullys). Noises can be caused by the belt(s) themselves, pullys, bearings, pully bearings, water pump shaft bearings (or belts/pullys rubbing up against something). Let's not forget that there is also belt(s) behind the Timing Belt cover as well as pullys and bearings associated with the timing system. You could start by removing one accy drive belt at a time (alternator, water pump, compressor, power steering, etc) to see whether or not the noise goes away in each case. If after each case, you discover the noise is still there, it's probably behind the timing belt cover (idler/tensioner pully, water pump shaft bearing, crankshaft bearing, etc.). Good Luck

i had a problem with my compass when it was new. at first there was a nice kinda high pitched sound coming from the engine compartment. it was not loud so i ignored it. after a while the sound seemed to get louder and not even, kind of like a loud squeak. it will come and go. and yes it was the water pump. the dealer replaced it and no more noise after that.

Squeak and slight vibration heard and felt in steering column at low speeds (Parking lots, etc)


Get a friend to turn wheel back and forth in the garage, get on the ground and use your hands to feel where the noise is coming from. Metal gives off a significant amount of vibrations with noise. Should be easy to tell where it's coming from. Could be your rack and pinion, however I would be much more willing to consider ball joints. Hard to tell without getting "down and dirty" on the floor under the vehicle feeling for the noise.

Could be your steering gearbox, tierod end, rack and pinion piston, low power steering fluid, bad serp belt, ball joints, front struts/mounting hardware.

Also test steering with the entire vehicle on the floor and with the front end off the ground lifted by a few floor jacks lifting on the frame of the vehicle.

Ball joints especially on Ford vehicles tend to squeak after a while (mostly since they are the sealed type) even if they pass a safety inspection.

Loud squeaking brakes.


If they are wearing down, they may squeak, and some brakes have a metallic part that will come in contact with the rotor when the wear gets to a certian point making an awful squeaking sound telling you that mabe you should change 'em soon, eh
