Question: Lfashing check engine light and high pitch squeal on sharp left turns.

My Edge has 9,800 miles on it and had to have its engine ( long block replaced at 4,000 miles. Since the new Engine was installed I have had my check engine light come on twice going up hill. It flashed for about a minute or so and one time even lost power. Dealership says nothing is coming up on the diagnostic machine. Also has a hight pitch squeal when making sharp left turns. Dealer just told me its normal in some Fords?? wth?? Any help?

Not sure about the noise when turning. It's not the tires is it? Maybe something in the power steering. Hard to say.
