Backing up, very noisy

Recommended Posts

I bought a Ford Edge 2015, Platinum edition. Lately, when I put in reverse, it's making an awful grinding noise and the car starts shaking. When I put it back in drive, it stops. Has anyone experienced this lately?

Welcome Sergepaul! Do you mean the Titanium? AWD or FWD? Sounds very much like a transmission (clutch) or PTU problem. I would have said possibly brakes if the symptoms appeared even in Drive mode. When you put it in reverse, are you on flat ground, or on a slope (uphill/downhill)? Does this happen even after the car has been driven for a while or only right after when you first start it up for the day?

 

EDIT: If it's trans related, could be as simple as a shift linkage adjustment. Any difference if switching from Neutral to Reverse versus Park to Reverse (all while the Edge is motionless of course) then moving?

Yes it's the Titanium AWD. I am on flat ground when in reverse and the noise is there even after I have driven it for awhile. Hopefully, it will be a small ajustement in the shift linkage. No difference in the noise from drive to reverse or park to reverse. I will be getting it checked at the beginning of next week.

Thank you for your comments.

I just started having the exact same grinding sound anytime I put my 2012 Titanium in reverse.  Must get it checked for same.

Did you figure out the problem?

Did anybody find out anything about this issue?  I am having the same exact problem right now, and my Edge is in the shop.  They don't know what's wrong with it and can't replicate the issue.  It's intermittent.

Mine is a 2011 Limited AWD.
