2008 Mustang GT Idle vibrations

Hey, while revving in neutral I've noticed that from 1650 to 2000 rpm I can feel a vibration coming into the cabin. Originally I thought that it was just from needing to have my wheels/tires balanced. However I though I would try in my driveway, revving to see if it was present while I was stationary; and it was. I have also noticed that there is a ticking noise during idling could these be related?

Anyway, my mechanic was saying if it gets worse then I should take it to Ford; if it stays the same it could just very well be a harmonic inherent in every engine.

What are your thoughts on the matter?

Thank you.


Andrew Bruce

My engine doesn't vibrate like that. Have you taken a look at the harmonic balancer?

muffler hangers are notorious for sending vibrations into the cabin on Mustangs, the last 2 i've owned did it (06' and '10).
the hangers are too close to the frame...check them 1st before a trip to the dealer.
this might not be it...but it's free.
good luck
