Hear a squealing noise when I put it into gear
My car has 148000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
That squealing noise is commonly caused by a worn out serpentine belt and belt tensioner. Your Escape is at about the right age and mileage for the belt to be worn out. A technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to inspect the issue and replace the belt for you.
