What the heck is wrong with my 2009 Mustang GT?
I started hearing a raspy, ticking kind of sound from my shifter area, which seems to be getting worse. I thought it was something in the transmission, but the mechanic at my Ford dealer thinks its coming from the engine, and being transmitted to the tranny. Now here's where it gets weird. They say yeah, we can hear it, but we don't have another similar Mustang to compare it to, and we don't know what it is, and we called Ford, and they don't know what it is either. So after taking a day off work to take the car to the dealer, that's the result I got. I'm like, well what am I supposed to do, listen to the noise and ignore it? They say, well, we don't think its hurting anything. It may be a normal noise... I'm currently stunned.
The sound, (which to me sounds like an exhaust leak), is loudest under load at about 3000 RPMs.
Should I call the Ford complaint number in the back of my manual? Don't like to piss off the dealer, but at this point, he's not doing me any good.
