    Okay so I've got a 2000 Mustang v6 5 speed with 155k. Now I've got something pretty weird going on, after driving for about 10 minutes (happens faster if driving faster) of driving you get this burning rubber smell inside and outside the car coming from the front passenger wheel area. I...

    Recently, as in a couple of days ago, my 2000 GT started having idle issues. It will start up just fine, but after about 30 seconds of idling, it'll start loping/misfiring like it's running on two cylinders. It also gives off a smell that I'm unfamiliar with. Trying to give it some throttle does...

    Howdy, I recently picked up a new to me mustang, 2000 standard v6 (I know wrong thread but the interiors all the same and this thread gets more attention) all the airbags are blown and the exhaust is half missing (i could care less) but the biggest problem is that the car seems to think i care...

    Disclaimer: New here and not previously a "car person" but fairly mechanically inclined. We've just purchased a 2000 3.8L convertible. After figuring out a few electrical problems, we know that the pump works and will rise and lower about 90% of the way. However, when lowering the frame is...

    Hello all, My 2000 3.8L has been acting strange lately. The past couple times the engine has been warm and I've turned off the car to run into the store or something and then come back to start it up it idles terribly acting like it's going to stall out and vibrates like crazy. It only seems to...

    2000 GT This replacement intake has the pre installed gaskets right? Will I need to buy the gasket strip separately and place under the manifold? Or do I just clean it off and set the manifold directly on the metal? Will the pre installed gaskets prevent leaks or do I need a separate gasket strip?

    I recently did a recharge on my a/c system on my 2000 GT and just noticed yesterday that no matter what setting I turn the selector switch to, the a/c is still running, even on vent. Any ideas why this might be happening or suggestions to remedy the issue?

    Hey guys, i just purchased a 2000 mustang gt a couple months ago. The speedo is way off. I mean it tells me about 1/5 of the actual speed im going. It has aftermarket gauge cluster. Also the abs light is on for "Speed wheel mismatch" Does anybody have any idea about this? Maybe the speedo needle...

    Hello, I have a 2000 Mustang ragtop that I purchased recently, the wipers only work on "High" so every other position does nothing. However I did not notice until now, that when the headlights are on (switch pulled all the way out) and you either turn the wipers on to High mode the Interior...

    Hi. I have owned a 2000 Mustang for a couple of years now and really love it. It isn't without its challenges owning an older car so I thought it might be good to be here in this forum to learn from others. I would really like to work to restore it back to its original beauty (paint/interior)...

    I've had my v6 for about 3 years now and this is the first inkling of any transmission problem I've had. I was driving home the other night when I got off the highway and slowed down to drop off a friend. I attempted to put the car in park, but the shifter decided to move freely between every...

    So this winter i did a transmission swap from automatic to standard. I was so happy when i finally got it to run and took it for a spin. First problem i noticed right off. When i went to shift it was a little difficult and felt like i was pushing through a rubber stopper or something in the way...

    Seat belt won't retract on either side. Any quick fixes for this?

    I bought a 2000 ford mustang, and since I bought it private sale, I didn't have a Carfax or anything. I knew it had some damage, but while cleaning the interior I found the passenger air bad has been deployed. That's when I went in inspecting the car even finer. I found that the from bumper has...

    Hey, I'm Tori from Wisco. I got my 2000 Mustang Convertible about a year ago and I'm just now upgrading it a little bit. I bought speakers that fit the car, but installation would have cost me an extra $150 so I decided to do it myself. I got the front speakers in and they sound great, but now I...

    I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Joe and I just bought my first Mustang. I love it. 2000 GT Laser Red. I just changed the oil and the power steering fluid. I also removed the ABS Module to send in for repair. One of the coolest things about owning a Red Mustang is my 2 year old son loves...

    Hi Folks. Been reading the forums awhile but first time I had a problem worth posting about. My old headlight assemblies were in bad shape on my 2000 V6 convertible with daytime running lights (has the electric eye on the dash by the A pillar). I bought a pair of Anzo USA headlights with...

    Ok I have a 2000 ford mustang and I bought it from a dealership Thursday. The car is a gt but the previous owner did a motor swap before giving it to the dealership and they put a v6 in it. The car has nitto tires, pods, and racing seats already in it so I'm assuming they used it for racing and...

    Hi my name is Shane and I have a 2000 ford mustang. I just got it Thursday I got a heck of a deal on it considering the tires, rims, pods, and the racing seats. I'm assuming they didn't know what they had because I bought it at a dealership $3600.

    (Please bear with me, as I am not all the tech/car savvy...) I bought a used 2000 Ford Mustang about two weeks ago. She has 133k miles on her. I got her for a good price, but I was sure there was stuff under the hood that needed some correction. The day after I bought her, I noticed that she...
