My escort just started having this same problem! It's a 1997 escort, 115,000 miles. There's this squeaking noise that just started like two days ago and now it's on and off. It started when I was on the freeway and going over 60mph and now it occurs even when I'm going 30mph. When I brake, it stops. I know I need to replace my brake pads. I have had my front bearing? Replaced like twice now, cost me like over $600 each time. I don't recall hearing this noise ever before. Have you figured out what the noise is from? Thanks
I am editing my post to add, look what I found online, maybe it's this! Need to replace PCV valve?
