2007 Ford Freestyle 90K miles.
I bought it used and it had a slight helicopter noise coming from under the hood. Mechanics at Ford dealership didn’t find it remarkable. Now, 16 months and 15K miles later, the noise has increased in volume so much over the past 30 days that typical road noise doesn’t disguise it. Folks are giving me looks when I drive by in the parking lot.
I have a clip of the noise posted if you want to take a listen: http://youtu.be/aXWdHdBZJog
I’ve read some posts that this is symptomatic of transmission problems…specifically the insert shaft is grooved, warped, etc. Any ideas?
Thanks for your feedback!
