Please help....the noise is getting worse:
I have a 2012 Ford Edge and starting about a year ago...the best way to describe it is when starting the Edge the starting process takes maybe 2-3 seconds for the engine to fully turn ut occasionally (happening more frequently now) the best way I can describe is the starting process continues for several more seconds with what I can best describe as maybe a vacuum noise that continues.
it is louder than the normal idle. Now, most times if I step on the gas pedal for a brief second it will stop....sometimes a few seconds. I noticed lately that I will have to tap it 3-5 times and sometimes that still does not work....I end up turning it off and turning it back on....sometime celan...sometimes 3 or 4 taps of the gas pedal.
Here is a link to a YouTube Video that has the noise https://www.youtube....eature=youtu.be
I notice it more in the summer (here in Michigan)....but about the same as hot and cool summer days.
Once started, it seems to run fine. It also happens on cold starts (sitting for a long time).....and warm starts (coming out from a store).
I spoke with the dealer and they really did not have any thoughts....obviously willing to look at it for their fees.
