Your strut or your strut mount is probably going out. Some component might be coming unattached and will need to be looked at and reattached before it becomes a problem.

First check to see if there is a loose wire or plug. Are you using the right gasoline for the Ford Escape. It may be possible that you have sediment in your gas tank. Also you might want to check your oil by using your dipstick.

Such noises could range from the 'easy-to'fix' variety to the expensive and complex. Foreign objects could be caught under the vehicle, or damaged and loosened parts could be 'noise-causing. '

I would say that something is caught in the undercarriage of yoru ford escape. Have you driven overanything recently? Check to see if anything is caught underneath your vehicle. Once you do this is the noise gone? If not take it in to get inspected.

First you need to isolate where the noise is coming from - the front or the back. Then have someone bounce on that end of the car to replicate the noise while standing nearby to isolate where its from. More than likely if its a "moaning" sound it is a rubber control arm bushing or sway bar end link.

This is a very common issue and has been reported by a lot of people. You should check if there are any loose parts or something is hanging with the car. If it is a loose part then you can fix it, but if you can't find the source, take it to a local mechanic.

I'm not sure what you mean but, I'm assuming there is a clunk of bumps? The most likely cause is a worn suspension bushing. Have it checked by a mechanic.
