So apparently when a Ford Engineer makes a decision about your car it is final. My case is now closed with Ford and I was told basically that is it. They said the high pitch noise is within the allowed tolerance. But no one could tell me what the range was or how the measured it.

I wonder if I can lemon law the car.

I still think the OP has "TIRE" noise

Ain't nothing can be done about "TIRE NOISE" but get different brand of tires such as Michelin's.
****************************************OR********************************************
Trade it in on a Lincoln or Cadillac.
Put a set of Borla Ataks on it.
Turn up the radio.

See, there are plenty of options to eliminate the tire noise.

If it was tire noise I would have had it fixed already unfortunately that's not the issue.

I wish we did not live so far apart.

I live in Port Orange just south of Daytona right off of I-95.
I see you live near Delray.
I would really like to try to help you with the problem if you ever decide to come to Daytona or passing through.
I may or may not be coming to Miami After the 4th. of August. If I do I'll give you a shout and maybe we could get together.
How is the noise if your windows are open?
Ronnie

Thanks so much for the offer. I actually used to live in Palm Coast which is only 30 min from you. I have no plans to travel that back that way anytime soon but if you do come to south Florida I really appreciate any help.

He said the sound and pitch doesn't change with changing pavements.

I'm wondering if it is the "BELT"

Did the dealer try putting a dressing on the belt or check to see if a bearing in the tensioner is going bad?

Get a long screwdriver and place it against your engine while it is running. Place the other end of the screwdriver against your ear. If the sound is coming from your engine you should be able to hear it. They do make stethoscopes for this purpose but a long plastic or wood handle screwdriver will work fairly good to hear sounds in the engine.

If not tire noise it is possibly the belt or a tensioner that is the problem.
