Hey everyone, 1st time Mustang owner, life long Mustang lover.
I have a 2005 Mustang V6 with Manual Transmission and just at 35K miles and have been hearing some stranger than normal sounds coming from the engine bay.
First, when cold there's a loud squeaking that matches the RPM's (louder when RPM's are going higher, quieter while lower RPM's), and did some research and found that the Idler Pulley is very common thing to give some squeaky sounds, or the belt (going to grab a Gatorback belt this week just in case, doesn't hurt).
So, not TO bothered with that, nothing seems like its coming loose and the belt is running smoothly, doesn't seem to be any gouges or chipped pieces.
Anyways, I was just listening for a little while and the engine sounded like it was making a rougher sounder, and so, instead of trying aimlessly to explain the EXACT sound so that you, the experts, I recorded it on my phone and pasted it on Youtube so you can hear exactly.
Now, I don't know if I am just being over paranoid, but I just wanted to see if anyone had any idea's before I bring it to someone where they would charge me to simply say "change your belt, or pulley"
This is at idle, than a little bit further in the video, I give it some gas (to right around 4000 RPM), you can't hear the squeak really, was driving around before I took the video so it was kind of warmed up. Also, there is no engine modifications or anything, the only thing I have on the car is a Axle Back Exhaust (American Thunder), other than that, she's stock.
