I am assuming your Transit is an older model. To get rid humming noises out of Car radios in the old days from generators and alternators there was a device they used to put on the alternator. I think it was like a capacitor. I am pretty sure you can still buy these at places like Jaycar and Dick Smith. They also used to put a device in the spark plug leads to stop interference from the motor/alternator. I don't know if this will help or not but is worth a try. Of course it could be a squealing fan belt and will do it until the belt warms up. That being the case a bit of soap or crayon on the belt will/should stop it. Hope I have helped.

1988 ford ranger 2.3, why is my egr valve squeling it sounds like when ur belt squels?

Disconnect the vacuum line to it after the engine is running. It may generate a trouble code but if the noise stops you have a vacuum leak in the egr diaphram. You will need to replace the egr.

Lod chirping, squeling noise from engine in ford taurus. Belt is

The cam shaft stabilizer for the 2003 to 2005 have been a known issue. They will intermitantly squel till they go completly out.

I took my 2003 and 2005 Turas to a professional mechanic. They where able to verify the cam shaft stabilizer was the issue since the squeling noise was coming from top right side of the engine.

The surpintine (fan, AC) belts are locted on the left side of the engine.

Once I had the cam shaft stabilizer replaced. I never had that squel again.

Transit not starting

The engine in this model doesnt need glow plugs, Its direct injection. If the van is not starting then it will be fir another reason. Ok, can you get a 17mm spanner and loosen the pipes onto the fuel injectors. Crank engine and see if there is fuel coming out. If not just crank it for a few minutes and see if some appears. If fuel appears, tighten pipes and crank for little while longer, see if it goes. If this doesnt work, i have a few more things to try.
