2001 Ford Escape Repair Question
My 01' Ford Escape will randomly rev up and down when I'm at low speeds or when I turn the steering wheel. I have to ride the brakes in a parking lot because it constantly just jolts forward without a warning. What could this be?? Note: It happens mostly
Have it scanned for hard and soft codes. The bushing/grommet where the steering column penetrates the bulkhead is probably the source of the squeak. Dry silicone spray should help it.

MIGHT WANNA LOOK FOR A VACUUM LEAK TOO
SQUEAL OR KINDA A SQUEAK?
WIFEY HAS AN 'O3, THE PLASTIC ON THE STEERING WHEEL ITSELF HAS A LOW PITCH SQUEAK WHEN IT MOVES ON/ IN THE COLUMN--I TRIED A SHOT OF SILICONE ON IT, IT HELPED BUT NOT 100%. IT IS REALLY LOW AND TOLERABLE NOW.....I AIN'T GONNA TEAR INTO IT, JUST 'CAUSE PLASTIC IS RUBBING PLASTIC....IF THIS AIN'T YOUR SITUATION
A FREE "LOOKY" MIGHT BE THE FELLERS AT A SMALL OPERATION AUTO SALVAGE YARD, OR THE GUYS AT AN AUTO PARTS STORE
