2013 Ford Edge Limited with 85,000 miles. I hear a chirping sound when I take off from a stop.

Just one simple "chirp"  Any ideas what is causing this?

 

Thank you

Light throttle?  Heavy throttle?

 

FWD or AWD?

It happens if I pull away fast or slow. No spinning tires. I can be driving down the street

and slow down for traffic then accelerate and there is the chirp. It is the same sort of sound

the walk/don't walk signs make if that helps.

 

FWD

The walk/don't walk signs in my area beep ...  could be brake pads are a bit loose?  When did you last have brake work done?

Does it only happen after touching the brakes? What if you slow down without the brakes then accelerate again?

Sounds like it's part od the chassis/suspension system. At a stop, the car stops with the nose dipping. Starting up, the nose lifts and the suspension shifts. I would begin by looking at the torsion bars, front struts, etc. Try bouncing the front end (while parked) to see if you can recreate the squeek. Could be as simple as a bushing getting hard and needing a little lubrication.

I have had brakes done probably in the last 6 months. (I'm not exactly sure, but I do take my car in for regular maintenance, to the Ford dealer)

 

This morning I did slow down and then accelerate and it did not happen.  I did not accelerate quickly.

 

I notice the sound is only on the the front passenger side.  I need to have somebody stand outside and listen.  I remember

getting something done with the shocks, I think last fall.  I feel like this car has way too many issues for the age.  96% of my driving is freeway.

I have had 6 Explorers & Mountaineers combined so I'm not just trying to bag on Ford.  My next car will probably be an Edge again.

 

I'll try bouncing the front end.  Thanks and let me know if anybody has any other ideas.  Hard to take to the dealer by y house since they are open less hours than I work.  I don't trust the Ford dealer in the city I work in.

Do you have a turbocharged engine?  Sometimes when accelerating quickly I can hear the turbo spool on my 2.0 EcoBoost.

Your turbo "chirps" when you accelerate?

Not really much to go on so I will make a SWAG.  1. Belt either serpentine or power steering.  2. Sway bar link broken and you hear but it would be more consistent in noise.  3. It is a loading issues so more than likely a suspension related issue check LCA bushings, strut bearing but no way to check them unless you bounce the Edge.  Mount GOpro under the suspected area and drive around you might get luck to catch it.

Not a constant 'chirp' but you can definitely hear the turbo go 'pewfffff' when hitting the accelerator hard.

Any update on this? Our 2011 (124k miles) sport is doing this pass side also. Thought was brakes, replaced, still there. Found bad sway bar bushing due to leaking power steering filter, replaced, still there. End links were good at that time also. Im stumped Lol.

I had my 2011 in a few times until they figured this one out. It was a clip on the axle. All they did was lubed it up. I have about 10,000 on it now since they did it. Seems fine. Mine would make a chirping sound when starting from a stop. It sounded like a quick metal on metal chirp.

Could possibly be and most likely is your torque converter on your transmission is it vibrating under acceleration and do you hear any noise once you go from stopped to acceleration.

When the torque converter is failing the engines power is not smoothly transferred through the transmission and into the wheel. The shaking is caused by your engine on its mounts and when you feel it you think it is a suspension or tire balancing issue. Looks up torque converter issues. If you only get the shaking under acceleration you have your answer.
