High pitched noise when stopped

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I just purchased a 2012 Escape XLS with only 28k on it. So far I'm liking it but I'm concerned about the noise it has when stopped in drive. Sounds like a whine that goes away when put in neutral. A/C doesn't affect the noise either on or off.  Not sure about the service history on this vehicle but it appears that it spent a lot of time idling and used in one location all these years. It is a former government vehicle, possibly a security vehicle judging by the light bar marks and hole in the roof. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Maybe just needs transmission serviced?
